Change: How to Turn Uncertainty Into Opportunity™

While every change is unique, there’s a predictable pattern to change. Understanding this pattern and building the skills to navigate it, allows us to consciously determine how to move forward — even in the most challenging stages. This workshop is comprised of three modules. The first will teach individual contributors and leaders how to lead themselves through change. In the second and third, leaders will explore how to lead their school successfully through change. It can be applied as a stand-alone change framework or work alongside any existing change management process.

This online webcast takes place on May 6, 13, and 21, 2024. Each session runs from 3:30 to 5:00pm.

The 6 Critical Practices for Leading a Team

Many people are promoted into leadership because of their technical capabilities, however, people skills typically account for 80 percent of success in this role. Based on decades of research, FranklinCovey’s webcast 6 Critical Practices for Leading a TeamTM delivers the guidance that school leaders at every level need to be successful: the support, understanding, strategies, and tactics to develop as a school leader and turn their staff into an engaged, high-performing team. 

When: Friday May 31, 2024, 8:30am - 2:30pm PT

The 5 Choices to Extraordinary Productivity

The pressure to make good decisions while our attention is under attack is exhausting. We come to work burned out and disengaged. We’re not able to give our best, even though we want to. Time management alone isn’t enough. Decision management, attention management, and energy management are required to achieve extraordinary productivity. The 5 Choices® to Extraordinary Productivity combines timeless principles with current neuroscience research to help better manage decisions, attention, and energy.

Foundations for New School Leaders

Foundations for New School Leaders brings together practicing Principals as facilitators and thought leaders, along with the inspirational voices of BC’s education partners. It’s an exceptional opportunity for leadership development, networking, learning, and growth.

Foundations supports new leaders to ‘think like a Principal and Vice-Principal’ as they transition to the role. The relationships and networks that are forged during Foundations will support new Principals and Vice-Principals throughout their careers. Developed in partnership with the UBC Faculty of Education, Foundations has been designed to help facilitate critical transitions, both from the classroom to school leadership, and from Vice-Principal to Principal, and provides a provincial context for educational leadership.


The BC Principals' & Vice-Principals' Association is a voluntary professional association representing school leaders employed as Principals and Vice-Principals in BC's public education system. We provide our members with the professional services and supports they need to provide exemplary leadership in public education.
