We focus on independent day schools with elementary programs. We review all elements of your school's enrollment practice and strategy in the context of your local market and provide you with guidance on refining your efforts to admit and retain mission appropriate children and families.
We assist schools in understanding their leadership needs and in identifying the ideal person to take on the role. We are strong advocates for a transparent search process that helps the successful candidate and the search committee build confidence and credibility.
Independent schools are notoriously slow to change. We help our clients engage stakeholders and build a process that not only moves them through the change at hand but also provides them with a plan for growing institutional dynamism. Our change management services include leadership transition and coaching, strategic planning, organizational re-structuring.
We assist boards with orientation workshops, retreats and ongoing coaching to create the organizational patterns, behaviors and cultural pathways that keep trustees focused on strategic and generative thinking.
