Folio is a leadership collaborative for educators. We bring together a platform, a community and highly-customized trainings to help you create conversations that inspire learning, fuel mastery and create a culture of connection and belonging.
We design trainings with verve — they’re fuel for the fire (and they can help get you unstuck too). Starting from the belief that none of us is as smart, capable, or experienced as all of us, our training’s center on collaborative problem solving, experimentation, and reflection. Members tell us they leave inspired and invigorated with fresh thoughts, new skills and a community of leaders to rely on as they try out new ideas.
We believe conversations determine the quality of relationships, the quality of team work, and the nature of a school culture. Our conversation practices fuel inclusion, belonging, well being, and growth. And particularly now, because conversations are essential for creating a culture of care, together, we rapidly hone our mindsets, skills sets and leadership practices so that we all thrive together.
