FOLIO DESIGN STUDIOS
LEADERSHIP SKILL SPRINTS
FULL DAY WORKSHOPS
INDIVIDUAL OR TEAM BASED
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 spaces that yield fresh approaches to a significant challenge.
If faculty retention or well being are on your mind, and how to face and lead from barely surviving to thriving then this studio is for you.
Especially now, our leaders tell us they most hope their faculty feel seen, appreciated, and supported.
Join our skill sprints to learn, practice and fine tune conversations that do just that.
The Department Chair role is vital to student experience and teacher success. Chairs are charged with leading a variety of conversation types from team meetings, to coaching or feedback conversations to negotiating with other chairs.
We can fix that.

Cost $3000 for members per day + travel and Fierce Materials. Includes two pre/post coaching conversations.
Fierce Conversations® teach leaders how to have conversations that enrich relationships by igniting productive dialogue, interrogating reality, provoking learning, and resolving tough challenges.
Participants will leave this training with the skills to fully engage in real conversations with peers, parents, colleagues, and students.
Based on the book Fierce Conversations by Susan Scott, the workshop is adapted by Folio facilitators based on their experience as educators and school leaders. Designed as a facilitated conversation between professionals, the workshop offers opportunities for discussion, experimentation, coaching, and ‘real-play’ not role play.
Professional Learning: What do we hope for, now?
Cost: $3000 plus travel (includes 2 coaching consultations)
What do faculty need now? What is possible? We have seen over and over that the schools who have the best outcomes from myFolio platform do so with the support of a well-designed internal process for coaching, supporting, and providing feedback for faculty and staff. Pairing myfolio with these internal processes creates a consistent, structured, and intentional investment in faculty and staff growth
This workshop will help your team find opportunities to imagine and improve alignment between your myFolio approach and your strategic priorities. Using a consultative design process, Folio leaders will partner with you, guiding a team of your faculty/staff and leaders through an investigation of current state, creating prototypes, gathering feedback, refining your system, and creating a detailed plan of action for vibrant professional learning anchored in a culture of vibrant learning.
Goals Setting Workshop
Cost $750, virtual (includes 2 coaching consultation before and after)
Designed for large faculty/staff groups or smaller groups of leaders, this two hour workshop begins with an emphasis on the “why” of setting goals. It is designed to help faculty/staff shift into a growth mindset and develop more effective and meaningful goals. In small teams, participants will brainstorm, create or refine action items for their goals detailing the work that they intend to accomplish during the year, leveraging myFolio tools in the process. We also integrate a deep dive into research on habit formation, providing participants the opportunity to explore and apply this research in order to gain traction towards meeting their goals.
