Participates will learn:
What courageous leadership and cultures look like and what happens when courage is absent.
Spoiler alert: Without courage, toxicity thrives.
What gets in the way of us showing up as our whole selves and being brave.
Spoiler alert: It’s not fear.
The four skill sets of courage and how to immediately begin building them and putting them into practice.
Spoiler alert: This includes having tough conversations.

Teachers are some of our most important leaders.

We can’t always ask our students to take off the armor at home, or even on their way to school, because their emotional and physical safety may require self-protection. But what we can do, and what we are ethically called to do, is create a space in our schools and classrooms where all students can walk in and, for that day or hour, take off the crushing weight of their armor, hang it on a rack, and open their heart to truly being seen.

We must be guardians of spaces that allow students to breathe, be curious, and to explore the world and be who they are without suffocation. They deserve one place where they can rumble with vulnerability and their hearts can exhale. And what I know from the research is that we should never underestimate the benefit to a child of having a place to belong—even one—where they can take off their armor. It can and often does change the trajectory of their life.
