Leadership Associates Response to COVID-19

Leadership Associates’ Statement to Districts, Clients, and Partners in response to COVID-19

As California’s Premier Executive Search and Leadership Development firm, we continue to deliver high-quality services to school districts. Our highest priority remains the health, safety, and protection of our clients and partners.  We will continue to  provide search and leadership development services in a socially responsible manner consistent with local, state and national recommendations. We also recognize the need to be flexible in our approach and responsive to the preferences of individual district boards. 

Leadership Associates has established protocols for delivery of our services which respect all state, local and national guidelines. These protocols cover the increased use of technology to limit group gatherings, minimizing travel, respecting social distancing guidelines, and providing options for the conduct of designated meetings such as stakeholder input and candidate interviews.

Board Self-Reflection Surveys Help District Governance Teams to Improve Cohesiveness

Leadership Associates regularly supports school district governance teams through a combination of online surveys by board members and formal board development workshops (which are based on areas of strength and need that are identified in the survey). Board members who have participated in these workshops report high levels of satisfaction with the collaborative discussions and opportunity to improve the efficacy of board governance in support of student achievement that comes with this respected and effective program..

If you’re interested in learning more about how to arrange a self-reflection survey-based governance workshop in your district, provide some basic information on the form available at this link, or contact our Leadership Development office at (760) 771-4277.
