The Mindset Mastery Leadership Institute ™ is a high energy, hands-on 5-Day Professional Development where school leaders learn how to integrate powerful routines that foster Social Emotional Learning (SEL) skills in their staff meetings, classrooms, and schoolwide!  Participants learn how to help themselves and their teachers develop powerful mindsets and successful habits that result in high levels of happiness, resilience, confidence, and achievement in their staff meetings, classrooms, and their personal life.  When leaders and teachers are happy, resilient, self-aware, and strong in their social, emotional, and cultural competency, student academics, behavior, and school culture drastically improve!  By destroying limiting beliefs, creating instant positive mental states, mastering emotions, and internalizing the growth mindset, participants develop the capacity to meet life-changing goals, enhance their relationships, overcome challenging setbacks, live with purpose, and become unstoppable agents of change in their community!
