Leadership Strategies in a Time of Crisis

Small-Group Weekly Consultation, Coaching, & Support

Join a small cohort of leaders from schools similar in size and program scope to your own, in weekly 90-minute sessions on crisis management and contingency planning, facilitated by Montessori Foundation school consultants.

As schools look ahead, more and more school leaders are asking us to provide additional one-on-one school consultation and coaching.  There are not enough hours in the day to meet that demand. So, in response, we are offering a small cohort group setting on an economical monthly subscription basis. This model will be more affordable and practical while still providing expert advice and individualized support.

Cohort consultants will guide their groups to identify and develop practical solutions and viable strategies for school survival and stabilization.
