Leading a state or large urban school system is one of the most important and complex jobs in America. Yet there’s little practical preparation for the role today – and as a consequence, too many leaders are forced to learn on the job, at real cost to the thousands or even millions of students and families they serve. Chiefs for Change is working to fix that, by identifying some of the most promising future leaders, integrating them into a community of practice with current Chiefs, and helping them have real-world experiences that will make them savvy, strong leaders from the start.
Over the course of a 12-month program, Future Chiefs cohort members benefit from learning experiences that include individual coaching, shadowing, and participation in virtual and in-person peer-to-peer sessions. This allows these emerging leaders to develop the skills and networks they will need to build on their existing success and
prepare them for the challenge of their roles ahead.
