What Leaders said about the 2019 Leadership Summit:
Last summer, we had an incredible summit that participants absolutely loved!
This was one of the best. I’ve learned a lot about myself and my leadership and I’m motivated to get back to work and have a better second year..
Dynamic and packed with a plethora of tools I will comb through to apply to not only my work, but my life.
Above all other PD including first time superintendent training by TASA. TASA cannot compete with the level of personal development that occurs during the summit..
Not only the Summit in isolation but, the Leadership Partners experience overall was dynamic. Compared to other leadership training, it was the best I have attended.
- 95% reported strongly agreed/agreed to, “I have met and networked with new leaders”
- 95% reported strongly agreed/agreed to “The culture of the summit was conducive to creating relationships and building a community of learners.”
- 97% reported strongly agree/agree to, “I have new strategies and ideas to help me lead my school or district”

The Science and Art of Emotionally-Intelligent Leadership : Dr. Adam Saenz, licensed psychologist and consultant/speaker.

At every important juncture, there have been two common elements-lifesavers that appeared when he most needed it: education and teachers. Dr. Sáenz conducts workshops across the country in the areas of stress management, self-care, and the dynamics of effective relationship and team-building. Dr. Sáenz earned his Ph.D. in School Psychology from Texas A&M University with clinical training at Harvard Medical School. He completed his post doctorate in Clinical Psychology from the Alpert Medical School of Brown University. “You really do have a talent for speaking and connecting. You are easily my favorite speaker that I have seen…it’s the honesty and trust. Just great.”
