Together Group in action at KIPP Austin

See a workshop in action

Effective teaching and leadership require strong planning, sharp time and task management skills, and durable organizational systems. Without a clear method to sort through the daily deluge, it’s easy to lose sight of what you need to accomplish in your classroom or office. The cost of not having a plan is enormous: Your students and colleagues suffer, you sleep too little, and you all feel overwhelmed. Thankfully, with some intentionality, routines, and habits, it is possible to be an effective professional—and have a life!

Together Group workshops focus on the purpose, process, and usage of critical tools, skills and habits. Participants will learn why they need each tool, review samples of various versions, and then select and develop the one that works best for them.
