About the Leaders Initiative
The Leaders Initiative is a program of professional formation for current and aspiring school leaders. The Initiative will convene select groups of leaders for a series of targeted conversations on key topics relevant to school leadership. Drawing on the experience of The Heights School, the Leaders Initiative will give insights into the ideas and strategies behind directing a school. It will encourage participants to think deeply about the principles informing the practical decisions of leadership and will offer the opportunity for a collegial exchange of ideas and best practices.
The leader of a school is like a stone tossed into water: by his word and example, he produces a first circle, and it produces a second, which in turn produces another and another—until what was once a small pattern on the surface of the water reverberates throughout the whole body of water.
To respond to this great calling requires generosity, daring, and prudence. Even more, continuing to respond to this calling over the course of one’s career requires the support and fresh insights which good friendship offers. The Leaders Initiative aims to foster such professional friendships.
