Newly Appointed Heads of School
January 9, 2020
4:00 pm (CST)
The Education Group and the Southwestern Association of Episcopal Schools want to congratulate all newly appointed school heads and to offer you help as you prepare for your big move next summer. We know that this is a very busy time for you.Please join three former school heads for a special Webinar on Thursday, January 9 at 4:00 p.m. CST, designed just for newly appointed school heads.
Consider this. You have just passed through a demanding search process, experienced the excitement of success in it, begun to plan for the future at your new school, and yet still serve fulltime as a leader at your current school. You may never be busier! Moreover, your “excitement” is exhilarating (“I can’t wait to get started!”) but it’s also a little scary (“What have I gotten myself into?”), as the reality of your appointment hits home. You are the head of a school!
And as eager as you are to tackle challenges you learned about in the search (e.g., the urgency to revitalize the faculty or to build a new field house), you probably find other matters daunting (your inexperience in fundraising, your succession of a 30-year veteran icon, or perhaps your need to reassure an anxious spouse and kids). And all of this is happening at once!
This Webinar, sponsored by The Education Group and the Southwestern Association of Episcopal Schools and conducted by TEG Executive Coaches who have “been there and done that,” will address your questions and raise others, all in an effort to support and empower newly appointed school heads to make the most of the months before you “officially” start to work next summer.
