Catapult and Third Future Consultants would like to thank everyone who attended our recent conference and contributed to the important dialogue around the future role of the principal. We had a terrific line up of speakers and highly engaged participants. Stay tuned for upcoming information about our fall event. We hope you can join us.
Leading the Way!
2016-2017 Fellowship Applications Now Open
Transformational change is driven by leadership, not management. If you are a school leader eager to explore how to create transformational change within your school, please consider applying to be a part of Catapult's 2016-17 Fellowship Cohort. Our application is available HERE until March 31st.
"In my time with Catapult, I have appreciated the professional development as being some of the best I've gotten so far in my career."
"I feel compelled to say thank you because I can honestly say that the PD we are receiving through Catapult is the highest quality PD I have ever received. As a school leader, I have found it is rare when I attend a PD and can apply the strategies learned immediately. However, in the case of the work yesterday, I can tell you I have already applied more than one strategy learned today. It is powerful and reassuring to be supported in this way as a professional."
"Not only am I growing and developing my skills and competencies as a leader, I am now recognizing and developing the talents of my team."
"I wanted to send a quick note about the truly transformative tools you all have provided me as I have boldly stepped into my new role of school leader. I have used the processes and strategies that I've learned with each of the instructional teams at my school and have found it to be incredibly powerful! I've got to tell you, the work thus far has been the most productive of my career."
"My work with my coach has been a key factor in my ability to apply the things that we are learning. Through this, I am able to be more purposeful with my time and my priorities are much clearer."
"Being a part of this cohort has been incredibly valuable. Having time with like-minded colleagues gives me the courage to move forward, knowing that others are facing similar challenges and are working to make things better for our kids."
"Catapult has taught me how to plan strategically and align my actions with that plan. This work has positively impacted everything I do in my job."
Catapult is headed to Austin for SxSW!
