As educators, we are not taught leadership. We're taught education. Holdsworth teaches us how to lead an organization.”

Our programs

In our programs, superintendents, central office administrators, principals, assistant principals, teachers and other campus leaders engage with some of the nation's top experts in their fields from a variety of sectors, including K-12 education, academia, government and business.

Through our leadership curriculum and coaching experiences, Holdsworth takes leaders on a journey of self-reflection and skill-building to help them learn, grow and ultimately have a greater positive impact on students.

Learning sessions are held on the , a retreat-like setting that allows teams to step back from the day-to-day and see their district’s challenges and opportunities more clearly.
