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.

Principles are a way of articulating values into behaviors; especially in moments of conflict.
