Education leaders, please join us at the beautiful Bosque Retreat Center in Albuquerque, NM for an inspirational and restorative three-day retreat.
Each spring, the Sofia Center for Professional Development at Bosque School brings together education leaders from public, independent, and charter schools, pre-K through University level, along with education leaders working beyond schools, for three days of inquiry, rejuvenation, and strategy focused on leading with intention and passion.
The Wild Leadership Retreat began in 2015 as an exploration of what it means to lead with courage and wisdom, defining wild as going being conventional expectations and doing so with passion. Over the last five years, the Sofia Center has developed a set of eight Wild Leadership principles, informed by a wide range of education scholars and practitioners. These principles offer a vibrant framework for our retreat and a compass for education leaders as they navigate the challenges of leading with a strong combination of savvy skills and wholehearted presence.
The retreat will be led by: Sheryl Chard, Founder & Director, Sofia Center for Professional Development at Bosque School, Albuquerque, NM; Elsa Menéndez, former Education Director, National Hispanic Cultural Center, & Consultant, Albuquerque, NM; and Tamisha Williams, Dean of Adult Equity & Inclusion, Lick-Wilmerding High School, San Francisco, CA.
Workshop examples include: The Power of Story for Education Leaders; Tend the Rituals of the Schoolhouse; Centering the Most Vulnerable in Our Work; Design + Lead Great Meetings; Build a Powerful Reflective Practice; Be Unapologetic about Love
Registration: $575 (includes delicious meals + snacks, Wild Leadership journals + toolkits, complementary yoga + wellness sessions). Lodging: $60/night at the beautiful Bosque Retreat Center. Group Rates + Scholarships Available
Please join us to expand your leadership capacity, to reconnect with the larger purposes of your work, and to gain renewed clarity and inspiration.
"This is a beautiful experience for school leaders on every level. The care and intention with which the Wild Leadership team designs the retreat succeeds in illuminating what is at the heart of educational leadership. I left not only with practical tools and ideas that support my work but also feeling refreshed, rejuvenated and connected." - Martha Egnal, Head of School, Guadalupe Montessori School, Silver City, New Mexico
