Professional Development for Principals, at no cost to you!

If you are a school principal in the US, or someone who supports school principals in the US, what are you worrying about as you close out this unprecedented school year and prepare for the next? Who could have imagined the turbulence we have experienced in 2020?  We can now be certain: We live in an uncertain world!

School principals will deal with the fallout from multiple disruptions and disasters as they re-convene schools. They face questions that have never been asked before. How will they respond? Structured plans, milestones, and predictable outcomes will not be possible. Instead of answers, they need better questions. Human systems dynamics (HSD) offers a path for exploring their most wicked issues using powerful questions.

Human Systems Dynamics Institute and Coplexity are proud to introduce the Complexity Academy: Educational Leadership for the Age of Uncertainty. For 20 minutes, twice each week through the month of August, principals will use a structured inquiry process with peers to solve real issues and to build their adaptive capacity. Upon completion of this Academy, participants will receive a certificate naming them as a Complexity Academy Fellow. For more about the Complexity Academy, view this brief video.

If you support principals, we invite you to nominate your most innovative, energetic principals who have the courage and capacity to step into the unknown future. If you are a principal, we invite you to share this with your supervisor and then nominate yourself.

What’s the catch? There is no catch. The Academy is financed by a grant from the Langeloth Foundation, so we can offer this learning opportunity for 100 principals across the country at no cost to the district or to the principals. This may prove to be the most productive 5 hours and 20 minutes of a principal’s career!

In the attachments, you will find:

  • Complexity Academy FAQ: Answers to your questions, including a link to a survey that serves as the principals’ application form
  • Complexity Academy Flyer: Shares the highlights about the Academy and links to the survey as well

Please contact us at info@hsdinstitute.org if you have questions. We will be happy to talk with you about this amazing and free offer.
