Distributive Leadership

Using a conceptual approach, we help education professionals understand how leadership is taking place within their specific district or educational institution, and focus on sustaining strong leadership practices, building capacity, and empowering educators as leaders at all levels.

Professional Learning Communities

Join a group of like-minded educators who learn and problem-solve together through collaboration, collegiality, and support. Drawing on the teachings and insights of Richard Dufour of Solution Tree, PLCs tackle the 3 big ideas and the 4 critical questions of learning behind a competency-based approach:

The 3 Big Ideas:

1. A Focus on Learning
2. A Focus on Collaboration
3. A Focus on Results

The 4 Critical Questions of Learning:

1. What do we want all students to know and be able to do?
2. How will we know if they’ve learned?
3. How will we respond when some students do not learn?
4. How will we extend the learning for students who are already proficient?


Teacher Leaders

We bring distributive leadership to the teacher level, to help teachers understand how leadership is taking place at their school helping teachers have agency over their teaching and grow as professional learners.


Leading the Transition to Competency-Based Learning (CBL)

Providing training for district and building leaders to be introduced to and lead the transition to CBL in their district. The goal is to build CBL capacity within the district and ensure long-term sustainability. This program is in partnership with the New Hampshire Association of School Principals.



Offering differentiated support through a customized approach. Focusing on district and personal growth goals in both one-on-one or small group coaching sessions. These sessions help create a district-wide strategic plan aligned with educator goals.

Educating for Equity

Promoting equity in education by meeting students where they are, whether they’re in a special education program, are multilingual learners, or require a multi-tiered system of support. Helping education leaders at all district levels audit their area to become aware of unconscious bias and remove barriers to equitable learning.


Student-Centered Learning Leadership Community (SCLLC)

Hosted by NHLI, SCLLC is a monthly meeting of New Hampshire educator leaders who support student-centered learning. Discussions include current issues, brainstorming solutions, and support of one another in efforts to keep students at the center of learning in their district.
