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.

School-based Coaching

Folio workshops are virtual or in person school-based gatherings that focus on moving better together as a team using agreed upon conversation practices, team rituals and routines. These workshops begin and end with coaching consultation so that the time spent learning is easy to lead and use after the workshop. Think of us as your thought partner as you deepen your culture, your conversational skill, or your practices of adult learning.

Fierce Conversations
Cost $3000 for members per day+ travel and Fierce Materials. Includes two pre/post coaching conversations.

Fierce Conversations® teaches 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, create prototypes, gather feedback, refine your system, and create a detailed plan of action for vibrant professional learning anchored in a culture of care.

Moving Together: Deepening Team Collaboration

Cost: $3000 plus travel (includes 2 coaching consultations)

This moment has re-taught us the power of teams. After many months of stress, uncertainty and change, teams of all types face frayed emotions and a decline in team collaboration skills. And yet at this moment, effective teamwork is essential to holding and guiding our faculty and staff to a future we are just beginning to imagine.

The quality and effectiveness of teamwork is also directly related to the quality of the work itself. This full day workshop—designed for teams of leaders and department chairs—is based on Folio’s “Building Blocks of Transformational Teamwork,” a research-based framework and whitepaper focused on creating collaborative adult cultures in schools. Assess the conditions in your school, explore best practices for increased collaboration, and build an action plan for making tangible cultural and systemic change.

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.
