Time For Change: Four Essential Skills for Transformational School and District Leaders Workshop

Little Rock, Arkansas | April 26–27, 2023
  • Solution Tree is in frequent contact with the staff at event venues to get updates about new or updated COVID-19 guidance from local and state officials related to events and public health. We have proactively taken steps to promote the health and safety of our attendees, associates, and staff.

Become a catalyst for school improvement by developing the skills of a transformational leader.

During this workshop, teams of teachers, counselors, building administrators, and district administrators will study four distinctive leadership behaviors proven to promote positive change: (1) communication, (2) trust building, (3) professional capacity, and (4) universal accountability.

As active participants, you and your team will examine the research that supports these behaviors, as well as engage in practice activities designed to build your capacity. Return to your school equipped with the skills and knowledge to lead effective change, address staff resistance, and create a student-centered culture committed to high levels of learning.

  • Discover how to generate a culture of accountability.
  • Learn how to recruit, develop, and retain professional talent.
  • Strengthen staff commitment and enthusiasm for school improvement.
  • Consider how to rebuild trust with distrustful staff members.
  • Examine the origins of logical and illogical resistance in schools.
  • Gain strategies for overcoming resistance to change initiatives.
  • Identify ways to provide professional support to struggling team members.

“I appreciated the opportunities to discuss the scenarios in a small group, but I really appreciated hearing how things actually played out. Anthony is very easy to listen to as he has so much experience to draw on.”

Daphne Brumwell, superintendent, Northeastern Catholic DSB, Ontario

“Dr. Muhammad was very engaging and knowledgeable. I have already begun using many of the techniques introduced.”

Shaunda Davis, principal, Jay High School, Oklahoma

“Having the chance to reflect on my practice as we explored transformational leadership with Dr. Muhammad was invaluable. I appreciated the insightful feedback provided during the scenario activities. I also thoroughly enjoyed collaborative opportunities with educators from around the country.”

Janolyn Winslow-Driver, principal, Val Verde USD, California

“Dr. Muhammad was a profoundly talented presenter. He offered many thought-provoking statements that made me rethink my own practice. We are all called as leaders to be self-reflective practitioners, and Dr. Muhammad guided this process for me. I now feel better equipped to be a positive instrument of change yielding positive outcomes for my students and a caring culture with high standards for my staff.”

Sharon Maisonneuve, principal, ACCESS Centre of the Northeastern Catholic District School Board, Ontario
