How can boards and superintendents, “Turn the lights back on?” (Billy Joel)

Using your living policies as the foundation for studied reflection and courageous action!
  • Inclusive and constructive community outreach. Accountable teambuilding. Involving students. Advocating for your district at every level of government.
A lot of people will just stop because they’re dead tired. You gotta do that extra one. That’s when you improve. – Usain Bolt
  • Learn from leaders of the most innovative boards/districts. Build momentum and sustainability for student learning through policy. Leave with actionable takeaways that can be adopted and adapted by your board.
  • Enjoy spontaneous hallway conversations and moments to build trusting relationships and empower new thinking and action.

Persistence in the face of adversity is the hallmark of effective leadership.

Feedback from past WS Conferences:

“I really like hearing from other board members and sharing those experiences. It’s been such a tough time for everyone, it’s nice to have that camaraderie.”

“I appreciate the Wisdom of AGI partners and your insight.  These are tough times and knowing that the CG model is solid will help Boards get through these times.”

“Sharing is caring. For me it’s about the relationships I have built over the past few years and the countless times I have gotten in touch with fellow WI Board members to ask how they do something or their interpretation of something has really, really been so helpful.”

“The thoughtfulness and passion of both the AGI staff and the board members who participate in Coherent Governance really help to inspire and arm board members to be more effective and focused on the heart of what school boards should focus on – students.”
