Introducing the Personal Agency Incubator.

A program created for educators looking to make change.

Join a community of education professionals in discovering an actionable path toward the realization of your vision.

Incubator begins March, 2022.

Crystalize your Vision through Self-Discovery

We start the incubator with self-identity work. Understanding who you are & why your pursuit matters to you. You'll crystalize your vision for your project through your "why".

Weekly virtual meetings providing frameworks & guidance on actions you can take week-to-week

It is one thing to have an idea, and yet another to make that idea a reality. This incubator will take you on a journey of self-discovery to identify your "why", crystalize your "what" & empower you to develop a sound plan toward your "how". You will deliberately incubate your idea through conversations with others and exploration of new possibilities. It will then guide you toward finding the friends, allies, & resources you need to help you realize your vision.
