Leadership Training for Teachers: Elevate Your Teaching With START Framework

This course will give you the resources and knowledge to equip the next generation with the leadership skills they need to reach their full potential.

START’s highly tested framework involves 5 key steps:

1. Strategy: strategic visions, values, and goals
2. Tactics to achieve the strategy
3. Assessment to stay on track
4. Routines to link daily work to strategy
5. Training to develop essential skills

We each have certain goals and strengths we wish to achieve. START’s proven framework and tested tools allow for a customized experience for each individual. This is when true leadership transformation occurs.

Educators have seen many positive results including the stronger social-emotional learning capacity of their students within school and society. Our teachers have a renewed passion for helping their students learn and grow. Students develop the confidence and mindset to grow their leadership skills to reach their goals and live their passions. 

START’s proven leadership framework is designed to integrate a number of educational initiatives, including Social Emotional Learning, Mindfulness, Character Education, Growth Mindset, Inclusion, and Classroom Environments, Culture & Climate or Management.

You have probably seen it happen time and time again in your school. In this ever-changing educational environment, new technology and standards are being rolled out to accomplish a variety of goals. This can cause burnout known as initiative fatigue, not only for teachers but also for students. Our leadership training for teachers puts START’s framework into place to refresh and revitalize teachers. The framework can be implemented into any current routine so that you have a consistent foundation on which to teach and grow with your students. 

It is possible to reach a point where your students are engaged and find joy in learning.  Each of your students has a unique personality, so it is crucial to implement a framework that speaks to each person’s individual strengths and interests. 

Creating a culture of leadership within your classroom will allow students to develop into their full potential within the classroom and beyond. START’s 5-step, Leadership approach is proven to build the Responsibility, Resilience, and Resourcefulness students need to Lead Well, Be Well, and Do Well.

What people are saying 

“One of the things I find most valuable about START, the thing that sets your professional development resources apart from all the others, is that you start with the teacher.  You invest first in what they need to engage with a sense of purpose and to feel connected to their work.  Then you provide the strategic and tactical tools that support us in landing this work with our students. START’s Leadership Approach to Social and Emotional Learning has made a big difference to me.”  - Jason Lebar, Conley Elementary, Algonquin, Illinois

“I absolutely love what I have personally learned and implemented with my own leadership and see the value for teaching it to my students.  I believe children are never too young to learn how to be leaders of themselves and for others.” - Deborah Torrance, Zionsville Community Schools, Indiana
