Leadership Discussion Group

Join us for six Monday conversations with other administrators who understand exactly what your days are like. SAIS is partnering with Rob Evans & Michael Thompson for year three of a Zoom discussion group exclusively for division heads, assistant division heads, and assistant heads of school. Past participants have praised Rob & Michael for their facilitation style and ability to push, pull, and explore with the group rather than offering generic solutions. They help you help each other.

There will be humor, there will be validation, there will be community, and there will be uplift. Enrollment is limited to 30 participants.

The group will meet via Zoom from 3:00-4:15 PM Eastern on six Mondays:
-Sept 19
-Oct 17
-Nov 14
-Jan 9
-Feb 13
-April 3
Enrollment is limited to 30 participants.

Tuition: $325 for SAIS members, $379 for non-members
