This learning event is right for you if you are a senior leader looking to explore the role of principal

Principal preparation programs help new principals to understand and develop effective delegation and coaching practices, including how to work with others to agree on clear expectations, how to monitor delegated responsibilities, and how to use constructive feedback processes to develop the leadership capabilities of others.
