Education shapes our future.
but who shapes its leaders?

It’s time to rise above the COVID challenges by eliminating the barriers, hidden agendas and below-the-surface issues that hold team backs.

Let's build a better future together.

Education is tough. It’s always changing. Growing. Facing new challenges. But through it all, one thing stays the same. We teach because it’s a sacred duty to help create a better future for the generations to come.

That takes strong leadership. But not the strong leadership of the past, fueled by position and power. It takes the kind of leadership that you’ll recognize by its authenticity. Its level of honesty. The kind you’ll know by the leader’s ability to be vulnerable, to have the tough conversations others sweep under the rug. Because that’s how leaders in education create an environment of trust, effective decision-making and shared purpose.

“Leaders learn to be real with one another — to have the difficult conversations we often prefer to avoid, especially in times of conflict. Initiativeone equips us with tools we can use immediately to deal with conflicts honestly and constructively.” 

—Phil Ertl Superintendent, Wauwatosa School District
