Conversations are a key skill of impactful leaders.

Join our group skill sprints to learn and practice how to:

  • give and receive feedback
  • build trust, belonging, and
  • safety
  • run a team meeting that
  • yields clarity and unity
  • coach a colleague

Virtual full day workshops are designed to take a deep dive into your team’s leadership conversation practices.

If you are looking to deepen your skill as a Department Chair or hone a team’s ability to move together effectively, these workshops are for you.

Folio Meetups are designed to provide space to step back, think together, examine current school and leadership practices. Anchored by a provocative question, Meetups help leaders grapple together and prepare to lead conversations that matter at their schools. Meetups are free to all.

Design Studios are collaborative problem solving experiences that yield new friends, new ideas, and a quick playbook to use in your school today. Our first two studios focus on challenges fresh on our member’s minds: creating a culture of care and refreshing professional learning to help meet the moment.

School based coaching is being in the work together side by side. We offer (virtual or in person) school-based coaching and workshops that deepen teamwork and conversation skills.

Folio Meetups

Folio Collaborative Meetups are monthly one hour community gatherings. Join us for one or all as we create space to step back and think together about key questions on members’ minds. To accommodate folks in different time zones, we offer separate sessions, one at 12 to 1 ET (9 to 10 PT) and a separate session at 12 to 1 PT (3 to 4 ET):

Topics
January 20: What does it look like to keep growth front and center as a leadership team in order to develop the habit of reflecting and adapting?
February 10: How do we envision the community we want to be next year that centers on learning for all–students and adults?
March 10: What does finishing strong look like in your school, division, or department? How do we hold and lead our community with both pressure and support to keep the momentum in the final stretch?
April 21: TBD by member demand

Cost: free to both members and non members

Registration 

12 to 1 ET (9 to 10 PT)

12 to 1 PT (3 to 4 ET)

Folio Masterminds (Members only)

6 calls, October 2021 through April 2022.

One of our most popular offerings, the Folio Mastermind series brings together groups of highly motivated school leaders from Folio member schools around the shared goal of deepening growth-minded faculty cultures within their school communities. Each group is led by an experienced facilitator and meets for seven 60-minute calls over the course of the year to share challenges and brainstorm solutions together.

This year’s Mastermind groups will be organized around the key reasons you hired Folio as well as additional topics of interest to member schools.

Each group will meet for six 60-minute video calls over the course of the year. As space is limited and demand is high, we ask that you register for a Mastermind group for which you are able to attend at least six of the seven meeting dates. Once registered, you will receive confirmation calendar invites for each of your Mastermind group’s meeting dates.

Tuition is $250 (Folio members only.) Register here.

Folio Design Studios

Daily Actions: How do we Create a Culture of Care?

January 21st noon ET, and/or February 2nd noon and 3pm ET. Come to one design studio or as many as are helpful to you. We will gather more ideas and people with each studio to, together, tinker with the challenge.
Cost: $250 Register here

Folio is a convener and connector of leaders. We believe that together we can design and solve for the challenging moments we face as leaders. Come to a working design studio where we will co-create a simple playbook of daily actions that develop a culture of care. If you want your school to be a place where every adult feels they are seen, known and supported to do their best work, then this studio is for you.

What you will get out of this experience:

  • new ways of thinking about the topic
  • being part of a team collaborating and creating together
  • new connections to fuel your next steps
  • a process you might want to try with your team
  • a mini playbook to guide your daily leadership actions

What to bring:

  • a story (or data) that captures your current culture or reality

Turning Pandemic Challenge into Opportunity: What could adult learning be next year?

March 15th noon or 3pm ET and/or March 30th noon ET or March 31st 3pm ET Come to one design studio or as many as are helpful to you. We will gather more ideas and people with each studio as we, together, tinker with the challenge.

Cost: $250 Register here

The pandemic has cracked open so much of how we do school. A top goal expressed by Folio members is how to keep the creative spirit of innovation that surfaced in response to the pandemic—a spirit that freed us to pull together and think differently.

What do you want faculty to feel and believe about their craft?

Let’s dig in and consider “what if”…? For example: What if…schools were learner-centered? What might professional learning look like that is centered on well-being, collaborative learning and collective joy? What if faculty felt safe (and excited) to inquire about what is working for their students, honestly? What if we thought about a single concept for all: inquiry?

What you will get out of this experience:

  • new ways of thinking about the topic
  • being part of a team collaborating and creating together
  • new connections to fuel your next steps
  • a design process you might want to try with your team
  • a mini playbook to guide your daily leadership actions
