The Self-Leadership Collaborative partners with educators and school communities to:

  • Understand and practice the core concepts of the Self-Leadership Collaborative to benefit individual well-being and everyday interactions, personally and professionally. 

  • Explore how to authentically integrate and apply the model with their students and the school at large, within the guidelines of the SLC framework.

Stages of engagement: A road map....

  1. INTRODUCTION: The whole community explores and practices the core concepts and skills of the SLC. Leaders, educators, non-certified staff and parents are invited to try on new understandings and simple practices to profoundly shift the collective capacity to operate from Self-Leadership.

  2. IMPLEMENTATION: Invested community members, formal and informal leaders, participate in small cohorts to engage in in-depth study and practice of the P.A.U.S.E. model realizing it's application for personal well being, peer coaching and student growth.  Ultimately these community leaders serve as "ambassadors",  inspiring sustained engagement and application of the model for school wide practice.

  3. INTEGRATION: Key stakeholders as well the wider community partner with SLC to assess the need,  connect with a shared vision, and develop a customized plan for sustained culture change. Select community leaders are trained by SLC as "Champions" to champion holistic practice and culture shift, guiding system wide alignment with SLC core principles including for school policy, procedure, curriculum development and intervention and discipline strategy.

  There are three ways we engage and partner with educators and school districts:

  1. General Introduction to the SLC model: (Only includes Introduction stage)  We present core concepts and simple, practical skills of the model to large and diverse groups in the school community (leaders, teachers, parents, etc.)  through  1 - 2 hour presentations.

  2. Specialized Groups: (Can include Introduction and Implementation stage) In-depth, customized workshop series focused for specialized school personnel such as support staff, leadership teams, etc.

  3. Systemic Integration: (Includes all 3 stages) The whole community is introduced to the model, then ambassadors learn and practice, and finally select Champions lead full integration of Self-Leadership as a collective way of operating for a comprehensive, sustainable approach.
