Workshops at Member Schools


Member Schools' Workshop Submission form

John Gulla and Grant Lichtman are launching "If Not Now?", a FREE monthly series of short, interactive virtual events with special guests whom they think will provoke real "over the horizon" thinking for independent school heads, trustees, and members of leadership teams.

The pressures and challenges faced by independent schools have been steadily increasing for over two decades: declining demographics, market competition, financial sustainability, and the need to make significant programmatic changes in response to a rapidly changing world.  And in 2020, there has never been a more urgent time when we need to push the boundaries of our thinking about schools and what they can become.

John Gulla and Grant Lichtman have visited and worked with over 650 schools in the last eight years.  They have a truly unique lens on how some schools are successfully overcoming the inertia that makes sustainable change so difficult in schools.  John and Grant are launching “If Not Now?”, a free, interactive, collaborative virtual event series, specifically targeted to independent school heads, members of school leadership teams, and trustees.  Each show will be an interactive 45-minute dive into a specific area that impacts the long-term independent school value proposition. Each show will feature a special guest who is pushing the leading edge of the education sector, and will provoke thinking in ways that most of us may not have considered.

Each show will include:

  • Brief comments from John and Grant on what the future may look like over the horizon
  • Three big “best shot” ideas from the special guest
  • Breakout collaboration with peers
  • Sharing of exemplar schools, programs, and links to additional resources
