"Music takes us out of the actual and whispers to us dim secrets that startle our wonder as to who we are, and for what, whence, and whereto."
- Ralph Waldo Emerson
e practice a balanced approach to leadership coaching in BOSS Solo Recital. Solo Recital consists of the three elements of Assessment, Action, and Accountability and the leadership practices that achieve results.
Each BOSS Conductor works closely with the individual superintendent to complete a leadership360 assessment, identify professional development needs based on emerging district needs and develop a personal learning plan that prepares the individual superintendent for the work ahead.The Conductor guides, encourages and supports the superintendent as the learning plan is addressed.
At BOSS, we believe that exceptional leadership is learned.
Great leaders learn to ask questions that influence employee performance, dismiss the under-performing employee, hire the right people in the right positions, and ensure allocation of resources to the highest priority. Great leaders use these skills to engage teams and help people stretch beyond their current level
of comfort. We recognize that strong leaders manage the tension between people and performance. This is how great leaders attain the greatest results.
At BOSS, our unique advantage is that we approach each challenge as skilled practitioners. BOSS Conductors have been in your shoes and know that developing true, sustainable change in public education requires leadership that will be difficult. We have been in your shoes in
financial struggles, school board
partisanship, student tragedies, achievement performance gaps, Parent Association
differences, values conflicts.
We have learned to master difficult conversations, motivate team members, manage executive, board, union, association and student expectations.
