Damian Maldonado leads this cross-regional academy which will be offered in three cohorts. Participants enroll in the cohort that fits their schedule and are expected to take all modules and attend the four coaching sessions in order to graduate from the academy.

 

About D.A.S.L:
The purpose of the D.A.S.L. Academy is to deepen participants' leadership knowledge and skills in order to help them be more effective in their positions.  This multi-day institute is for site coordinators, site facilitators, and expanded learning leaders who want to enhance their effectiveness or assume greater responsibilities in their programs and districts.
Using the leadership competency model as the core foundation, the goals for this institute are to enhance:

  • Participants’ leadership style and behavioral skills as they learn to lead themselves,

  • Flexibility skills for effective leadership as they learn to lead others, and

  • Program quality and improve outcomes as they learn to lead their programs.

 

Institute Format:
The online leadership academy consists of one orientation video, four 60 min online modules & four 90 min coaching video sessions to support participants in transfer of learning, personal development and accountability for changing limiting leadership behaviors. In order to provide an ideal interactive learning environment each cohort will consist of no more than 30 participants. Participants will go through a variety of learning methods, including self-paced lectures, case studies, discussion, exercises, self-assessments and videos.
