START Goals for Leadership in Your Classroom

Be Well - Do Well - Lead Well

In response to the uncertainty brought about by COVID, START launched a new SEL & Leadership initiative for educators in 2020. This has expanded rapidly and inspired educators in schools and agencies across the U.S. and around the world. 

This opportunity is now available to YOU!

We've designed this self-paced online training for educators to implement in your own lives and in your classrooms.

Our purpose:

to rekindle your enthusiasm and sense of purpose for your work while advancing your personal and professional leadership skills.

In completing this course, you will also gain strategies to bring the START leadership framework to your students to build their connections, grow their skills sets and develop their leadership mindset to take the lead in their own learning AND their own lives, while also giving them the tools to navigate their own path with purpose. 

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

This integrated approach reduces initiative fatigue as it is easily embedded into your class or advisory routines to build essential life and leadership experiences for all students.

At every age group, START offers a positive, productive, and highly effective framework that is proven to foster the Mindset, Skill Set, and Meaningful Connections kids need to discover who they are, what they care about, and where they can collaborate and contribute in their classroom, family, community, and the world.

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
