Are You Providing a Habitat of Happiness?
Ask staff members what makes them unhappy at work, and you will hear about low salary, apathetic students and parents, and possibly an unskilled supervisor.  Did you know that most people leave their bosses not their jobs? Managed badly, some factors make people miserable. But even if they are managed wonderfully, it doesn’t make anyone work much harder or smarter.  Staff members are motivated, instead, by interesting work, challenge and increased responsibility.  These intrinsic factors answer people’s deep- seated need for growth and achievement.  Participants will walk away from this session with very doable actions and resources that help to create meaning in their staff’s day-today work.

Maverick Leadership
Inspire the maverick in all educators – give them tools and techniques to move even the most reticent educational institutions forward to benefit all kids. Attendees will walk away with immediately applicable ways to transform the culture of their campus to provide students with the best possible opportunities for success through innovative approaches to professional learning, passion-based initiatives and inspiring examples of leadership. Rather than recommend formal lesson plans, we believe 21st century learners require more flexible strategies and mindsets in their teachers.

Education draws passionate & talented individuals to its ranks. These professionals are completely dedicated to student learning, and strive daily to connect with each student to help them achieve. Often, these motivated individuals get driven into a ‘bunker’ mentality by forces beyond their control, and take refuge in making the learning environment the best for those students within their scope of influence.

Learn how educational leaders break out of these confines and stretch their entrepreneurial muscles through innovative public-private partnerships, contests, outreach and other efforts. Inspire the maverick in all educators – using successful examples to give them tools and techniques to move even the most reticent educational institutions forward for the benefit of all kids.

Harmonizing Policies to Save Time, Money and Headaches Related to eDiscovery, Public Record Act Requests and Data Breaches
Technology can be a powerful tool, but it is also a source of legal headaches for educational institutions. eDiscovery has become a norm in the litigation process, Public Records Act requests are becoming a weekly occurrence, and Data Breaches are occurring with increasingly frequency. The time is now to properly align your institution’s policies and legal strategy to be better prepared for these events. Institutions should have a formalized plan for document retention and destruction that acts as a starting point for effectively handling these situations. This session will discuss these issues and strategies for best practices to reduce risk, headaches and ultimately save time and money for your district.

Preparing Our Students For A Non-Obvious Future
Today’s world is experiencing accelerated rates of change. This heightened rate and pace of change will have not only implications for the future of work, but for the focus of education. Inability of today’s educational leaders to connect these societal shifts to what it means to be truly 'career' ready will and have created skills gaps that limit our students choices and opportunities. In a time when the levels of outsourcing, automation, and enhanced achievements in artificial intelligence, as well as issues around poverty, under and unemployment, and connections between education and employment, are creating previously unforeseen shifts across all of society, we need forward thinking leaders, drenched in awareness, who can see the big opportunity arising from the chaos of a very non-obvious future. In the midst of this current and coming upheaval and disruption, we need educational leaders who can prepare our students, our educators and our organizations to survive and thrive in a volatile, uncertain, complex, and ambiguous (VUCA) world.
