What does the ideal school look like?

  • School leaders who encourage and inspire their staff to do their best work
  • Teachers who are passionate instructors that work together as a team to enlighten the students they teach and the families they serve
  • Students who are excited to come to school each day and work hard to achieve their personal best
  • Families who are ready and willing to support their students and the school staff, and are active partners in the learning community.

How can I be a part of this school?

Reform isn’t a magic pill you can take – there is no one-size-fits-all curriculum, pedagogy, hiring process, evaluation tool, metric, or assessment that will result in the Ideal School.

You don’t need anything in particular to start building your ideal school – a great school is truly founded on the passion and energy of its leaders, its teachers, its students and its families.

We can help you use Energy Leadership principles to balance your work with your life, bring back the spark you once had for your career, build consensus and true teamwork among your staff, and encourage your students and their families to strive for their absolute best.


“I just wanted to send you a quick note saying thank you for last week. I really enjoyed the training. As I was walking out of the building, I heard at least three teachers say something like, “I wish all our [PD] was like that.” I knew you guys were going to be good, but you really blew me away.  Thanks for relighting my fire.”
