As a first-year principal in a new school, there is any number of daily interactions with staff, students and parents that influence the culture of the school. Over the years I have built a toolkit to support these interactions that drew from a large number of influences and have served me well. That said, SILA has done an excellent job of pulling together many of the skills that I have cultivated over the years and organized them into a cohesive and easily understandable package that offers a common vernacular to a staff. This commonality cannot be understated. Our "Superhero Powers" of mindfulness, basic assumptions and validation have found a home within the school and have provided positive outcomes in some of our most difficult personal interactions. I would recommend SILA training to any individual who works with people. Namely, all of us!
