Course Description:

This course is intentionally built to bring together the District's cabinet-level and senior leaders to develop greater collective understanding of the strategy and work of the District.  Members of SLT are responsible for fully understanding the District's theory of action (the Portfolio mindset) and strategic plan (The Cleveland Plan) and to operate under a shared single agenda.  Of primary importance is that the SLT ensures the coherence and alignment of the District's strategy.  This will result in both unity among the District's leadership and their individual and collective ability to demonstrate clarity about the direction for District.  This understanding will be shared and demonstrated by members of the Senior Leadership Team in all of their work, with both internal and external stakeholders.  In essence, The Senior Leadership Team as a collective body is expected to "speak on behalf of the CEO".
