Five Ideas For The Future

Inspired Leadership


We’re thrilled to announce the inaugural set of AAIE Leadership Masterminds for 2020. In this first round, we’re opening up three cohorts of 10-12 international school leaders who will meet via Zoom once a month (and via Slack in the interim) to engage in the critical conversations you need to be having to figure out the next steps into the future of your school.

These cohorts will be guided by Homa Tavangar and Will Richardson, two internationally respected speakers and coaches, who are both well versed in the complexities of the moment and the conversations required to deal with them.

"Culture is deeply entrenched, and changing it is like shifting the course of a river. If we want to truly change the river of culture, we need dynamite and dams —drastic measures reserved for an organization in existential crisis." Tricia Emerson on how to change a toxic company culture.

"Students have to be given the ability to use their innate intelligence and ability to reason and understand. This lends itself to the ability to attain knowledge and is crucial to academic and social success," intones Keith Davis of NASSP in his article on Emancipatory Education, "Guiding Students to be Critical Thinkers and Masters of Their Own Education."

Social-Emotional Learning/Child Protection


Join Cultures of Dignity for an interactive training that challenges school leaders to rethink how we articulate and act on a principles-based practice. Principles are a way of articulating values into behaviors; especially in moments of conflict. This is not work that stays in the a conceptual realm; it is the foundation for everything a school does from academic expectations, social and emotional learning programs, integration of student voice, to disciplinary decisions.
