About this learning opportunity

Leadership teams both school and system have been taxed with the demands of COVID-19. So many teams are focused on getting everything done and may not be attending to the health of their team. Team development and support may seem like something that is not essential with all the urgent items BUT it is crucial to the health, wellness and productivity of leadership teams. This session will focus on how to tend to teams intentionally so everyone stays well enough to support each other through this unprecedented time.

This learning opportunity is being subsidized through funding from Alberta Education.
