AAIE’S LEADERSHIP MASTERMINDS COHORTS
Now More Than Ever, We Need One Another
Over the past two years, AAIE sponsored Mastermind groups have offered dozens of international school leaders a safe, trusted, provocative space for honest discussions around personal and professional topics of their choosing. In monthly virtual meetings, we’ve shared problems, designed solutions, and offered support to one another in ways that energize and grow capacity to lead into the future.
