We are in a challenging time when leadership matters more than ever. How can leaders show up as their best selves to support their principals, teachers, students and their families? Each day of the conference will feature one of the best, most sought after presenters we have in the US. Our conference is usually held each summer at Rice University, but this year we will host the conference online. Join us virtually for one or more days this summer to receive incredible professional development, network with leaders from all over Texas and beyond, and become more prepared to lead your stakeholders than ever before.
What Leaders said about the 2019 Leadership Summit Conference:
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”

Returning From COVID-19: The Art and Science of Emotionally Intelligent Leadership : Dr. Adam Saenz, licensed psychologist and consultant/speaker.
Our students will experience a wide range of emotion as they return from the major disruption caused by COVID-19: excitement, relief, anxiety, anger, sadness and confusion. So will our faculty and staff. So, will you.
The disruption we are experiencing presents a golden opportunity for applied Social and Emotional Learning (SEL) skills, and the research is clear: effective SEL starts with adult SEL. This workshop explores practical strategies school leaders can implement to live and model the SEL skills we will need to thrive through this time of change, emphasizing personal self-awareness and self-regulation.
Have you evaluated how the strengths, liabilities, fears, and biases associated with your personality will help and hurt your leadership capacities in the return to school? Have you identified specific relational stress and task stress and created coping strategies that keep a toxic culture from taking root? Answering these questions involves heavy emotional lifting, but the rewards are compelling.
Emotionally intelligent leaders are far more relationally effective and professionally sustainable, and they report deeper overall life satisfaction than leaders who shy away from this important inner work. In sum, the most effective SEL intervention for every student is an adult living a life of emotional intelligence.
“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.”

Wednesday, June 10, 2020The Brave Leader: Bringing Courage Into Practice: Angela Maiers
For centuries bravery has been a crucible of leadership and a fundamental principle for battle of any type and kind. This has never been truer than today during the pandemic.
-But, what does BRAVE look like?

This presentation seeks to answer these questions by putting these elusive concepts of leadership and learning in place to deliver better results faster for you and those you seek to lead and serve.
Your mission is sacred. The world is hungry for people to step onto their power to affect change. It is by daring to act with the courage we wish to see more of that we grow our capacity for influence and amplify our impact in the world.
Let’s not wait another second!
Thursday, June 11, 2020Effective School Leadership During a Global Pandemic and Beyond: Principal Baruti Kafele
2020 has presented school leaders with a challenge that could never have been anticipated toward preparing for it – a global pandemic. Consequently, district and school leaders are scrambling to maintain some level of continuity for their students while in the midst of uncertainty about when and how schools will reopen. In this session, Principal Kafele provides attendees with strategies toward maintaining leadership effectiveness during what will likely prove to be the greatest challenge that they will ever encounter in their leadership careers.
“Principal Kafele positively impacted my thinking of me as a leader. I feel empowered to grow my staff to the level that student achievement will reflect my actions and responses.”
Friday, June 12, 2020Time for Change: Four Essential Skills for Transformational School and District Leaders : Dr. Anthony Muhammad
A leader who understands how to motivate, develop talent, and build consensus is worth his/her weight in gold. 2020 and the pandemic have created an era of constant change that requires leaders who understand the development and support of human capital.
This session will address the importance of transformational leadership, which is likely more important today than ever. School culture provides the context for all good strategies. We will examine four leadership competencies; communication, trust building, professional support, and accountability.
