Where Leaders Learn to Lead

One Powerful Workshop at a Time


A workshop program made just for licensed school leaders and created with your schedule and interests in mind. Educational entrepreneurs, this is where you have the opportunity to strengthen your skills, abilities and character.

Future-ready schools start with forward-thinking leaders.

Our workshops are designed to be just like leaders: effective and efficient. With a wide range of learning opportunities designed with Colorado’s context in mind, leaders can focus on the areas they want to grow.

Become a better leader one workshop at a time. 

Expand your leadership skills without stretching your schedule. Starting this summer, our focused 3-4-hour courses will inspire and reinvigorate you without adding a heavy demand to your already busy schedule. Workshops will be available throughout the year.

Learn from those who lead beyond.

It takes a leader to teach one. That’s why we’ve gathered nationally and internationally-recognized leaders and expert practitioners in leadership development to head our workshops. In an atmosphere full of leaders like you, learning from leaders like you, you’ll get re-energized and rejuvenated beyond the classroom.

Learn and Network with Convenience.

With workshops available in metro Denver and across the state, you’ll be able to join us when it works for your schedule.

Lead your own path.

Customize your learning experience based on workshops you want to take. Workshops are focused on contemporary models of leadership. Build your own leadership experience while learning from those who understand Colorado’s unique context.

Workshop Design Provides Options for Credit.

Make an impact on others’ futures, and on your own. Earn credit toward courses that can be stacked to complete courses toward a Graduate Certificate in Entrepreneurial Leadership. Credit may also apply toward degrees in the SEHD. Our leadership academy is designed for flexibility and provides options to help you accomplish your professional learning goals.


Upcoming Workshops

Leading Teams

The purpose of this workshop is to support leaders with fresh tools, tips and resources for managing the other adults in our building. Many of us may receive guidance on how to support our instructional staff (e.g., coaching and developing teachers, observation and supervision, etc.) but what about the other adults we support like our office staff, facilities managers and counselors. This workshop is ideal for any leader who wants to learn more about how to be a great manager of other people based on national research of the skills and attributes the best managers display as well as time to operationalize a plan for checking in and supporting all staff on a regular basis. You will leave this workshop with simple tools to better support, coach, supervise and monitor the work of all the adults on your team.

The course facilitator is Sean Precious. He is a regional superintendent in Denver Public Schools. In this role, he supports nearly 20 (grades ECE-12) schools across the district to meet ambitious academic, equity and whole child goals. Before this role, he served as a manager on the district’s talent management team supporting with design and training for hundreds of teachers, teacher leaders, school leaders and central office around our growth and performance evaluation systems. From 2008-2013, Sean served as a school leader in Washington D.C., first as a principal and then in a principal coach role supporting four campuses across D.C. and NYC.
