On Point Leadership has designed and facilitates multi-day institutes for school leaders that support the development of knowledge, understanding, and behaviors of successful school leaders. Each of our hallmark institutes is a collaboration with the Center for Creative Leadership and delivers a unique curriculum grounded in well-established leadership principles as well as the unique challenges of an educational environment.

Each of the programs is designed for a specific level of educator, includes a 360º or other leadership assessment, feedback with a CCL-certified coach, supportive activities and content aligned with applicable leadership responsibilities and challenges of the group members. Out programs can also be followed with targeted online tools and support.


We are happy to work with leadership cohort directors to customize On Point Leadership Institutes.
