New this year, NAESP is offering Mastermind groups for school leaders. A Mastermind group is a peer-to-peer mentoring group used to help members solve their problems through input and advice from the other group participants. NAESP Mastermind will offer a combination of brainstorming, education, peer accountability, and support in a group setting to sharpen educational leadership and personal skills. In pursuit of success, members will challenge each other to set strong goals and, more importantly, to accomplish them.
Fellows from the NAESP Centers for Advancing Leadership will serve as facilitators for the inaugural cohorts. Experts in their field, they will help the group to dive deeply into discussions and work with members to create success—as each member defines it.
