One-Day Workshop

Relationships: Your School’s Most Valuable Asset

A tremendous challenge for the business office is recognizing that the most valuable asset of a school is not on the balance sheet. The core value proposition for every independent school is developing and maintaining strong relationships – but how does the management team measure, support, and grow these vital connections?

In this one-day workshop, we will guide school leaders through a deeper understanding of strategies for building trust and engagement, including how they can progressively strengthen relationships with board members, the head of school, other administrators, faculty, and the broader community. 

Topics will include:

  • Sequence, Frequency, & Flow: Communication habits that support an engaged culture
  • KPI’s for measuring relational assets
  • Leadership habits that support greater trust
  • Data strategies for accurately assessing and improving relationships

Who should attend:

  • Business and Operations Officers
  • HR Directors
  • Heads of School
  • Other Administration

Join us afterward for the 2019 MISBO Fall Conference!
