The Artisan Leader Training


About the Artisan Leader Trainings 

Dr. Rutherford’s Artisan Leader trainings are specifically crafted to meet the needs of education executives—superintendents, central office leaders, principals and other successful education leaders who desire to take their leadership skills to the next level—to the great benefit of schools and districts they lead.  The August 31, session will focus on Building a Clear, Compelling Direction andDesigning and Leading Change.


Three Ways to Attend
Come by yourself.  Education leaders are responsible for the growth and development of all employees. Sometimes, because of this focus on others, we neglect our own professional learning.  Come this training and enjoy a day of personally relevant professional learning and networking with growth-minded colleagues from all across Kentucky.

Bring a team.  Experience the training with a team of leaders who will be co-responsible for designing and leading success back home. Learn together, build chemistry, and create commitment. As an executive leader, this is a great opportunity to mentor and develop key “rising stars” who will shape the organization’s results well into the future.

ring a vertical teamDevelop leadership capacity throughout the organization by attending as a team comprised of a portion or version of this chain… a community member and/or parent + a school board member + superintendent or district leader + a principal + an AP + a rising teacher leader. Vertical teams help to establish a leadership language and approach that permeates the entire enterprise.
