NAIS Peer Circles

Are you ready to connect and grow as a leader? Are you frustrated by the endless stream of tactical meetings when you need a space to deeply explore the complexities of your position and leadership responsibilities? Introducing NAIS Peer Circles, your path to connected and effective leadership.  

What are NAIS Peer Circles? 

NAIS Peer Circles provide an opportunity for candid, open, and insightful discussions about the realities of leadership with people who understand your challenges. You’ll be part of a carefully curated group––based on your preferences and role––of six to eight people in whom you can consistently confide but aren’t in your competitive network. 

Why Choose Peer Circles? 

  • Tailored Groupings: Your circle will be curated to align with your role and/or school characteristics, ensuring relevance and connection. 
  • Outside Perspectives: Tap into the power of other voices, experiences, and viewpoints. 
  • Expert Guidance: Each monthly 90-minute virtual session is led by an NAIS member school leader skilled in coaching and facilitation who will create the right balance of structured and unstructured time. 
  • Consistent Cohort: You’ll meet with your group each month from October 2023 to May 2024. (The cohorts will meet during the following date ranges: October 3-5, November 7-9, December 5-7, January 9-11, February 6-8, March 5-7, April 9-11, and May 7-9.)
  • Quality Online Experience: You'll use a virtual platform built for peer-to-peer learning.
