“Without reflection, we go blindly on our way, creating more unintended consequences, and failing to achieve anything useful.”
Our BIG Question:
How might you re-energize your work as an educator and leader after a difficult couple of years?
Join fellow educator-leaders from around the world for an inquiry-based experience that feeds the mind, heart, and soul.
√ Recharge after an incredibly taxing stretch.
√ Refresh and build capacity to navigate challenges to come.
√ Reconnect with the joys of education.
√ Respond to the needs of your school to facilitate a more vibrant and united community.
√ Re-envision what school might be.
Here's your chance to contemplate on your work, unleash your imagination, and build your capacity for more effective school and community leadership as we all navigate an increasingly complex future.
Reboot: Inquiry-Driven Learning, Live Coaching, Global Community
Our Leadership Reboot course is an affordable, flexible, connected learning experience that lets you choose how and when to participate.
On your schedule, you'll work your way through three inquiry-driven, activity-filled modules featuring provocative readings, discussion/writing prompts, and short projects that capture and share your experience.
Share your ongoing reboot journey including your challenges and successes with like-minded educators from around the world in our supportive global online community.
Each week, BQI co-founders Homa Tavangar and Will Richardson will lead live drop-in "Reboot Circles." Sustain your learning by attending these facilitated coaching sessions with other educators to discuss your progress and any setbacks you might be experiencing.
If you want to get stronger and healthier for your students and your entire school community, we're here for it!
Three Deep-Dive Modules
The Leadership Reboot focuses on the questions "Who are we now?" and "Who might we become?"
Module 1: Reflect. Where have you been brave? How have you changed? What gives you hope and how do you maintain hope?
Module 2: Reset. What are you determined to keep or carry through the “portal” coming out of Covid? What will you leave behind? If rest is resistance, how do we use rest as a way to reset? What other ways do you reset?
Module 3: Reimagine: In what ways might you use your imagination more regularly in your daily work? How can you begin to work and live with greater coherence between your values and actions? Dream about what school can be: What changes? What do you want to start building (or dismantling)?
Soul Work as Self-Care and Community Care
We're in a challenging moment.
An exodus of teachers from the profession. Increased levels of depression, anxiety, and burnout. Increasing uncertainty in the world. No one has been left untouched by global events and the ongoing challenges that educators are facing.
At BQI, we know this firsthand through our ongoing work with leaders and educators from schools in every part of the world. Those who are engaged in deep, personal sense-making that nurtures their own well-being are better prepared to create cultures of well-being for their communities.
We've designed this reboot experience for leaders and aspiring leaders in education needing rejuvenation after a difficult stretch of change. Heads of School, Principals, Assistant Principals, Division Directors, Board members, Trustees and others who want to reflect deeply on their work in schools and build energy for the future are urged to join us!
