TEAM KID Leadership:
Finding a “Common” Story of Putting Students at the “Core”
Through System Collaboration


Researchers call it a case study. Education reformers call it a story of success. Leaders call it the intersection of research and practice—Most importantly kids, parents, teachers, and community call it transformation!
Explore and deepen your identity as a game changer for youth through the principles and practices of Adaptive Schools and Cognitive CoachingSM. The braid of content, process, and group development has come together for these urban leaders.

With a TEAM KID perspective, journey with instructional leaders, Frances Gipson and Roberto Martinez, through the story of a youth service focus in a traditionally challenged system. Engage in reflecting on the coaching capacity that harnesses the human potential with Adaptive Schools and Cognitive CoachingSM tools—also known as belief systems. Enter the classroom, school-site, and district as an inquiring learning leader. Bring your Kleenex, open your heart, flex the mind, and be ready for the call to action!
