    Skillsoft Leadership Development Program (SLDP)

    This program makes extensive use of scenarios and behavioral demonstrations for fully contextualized leadership development. This instructional approach leverages a common set of characters, including a “leader mentor,” throughout the portfolio of leadership courses. The use of high-impact drama and pragmatic storytelling within the scenarios encourages engagement and retention by stimulating the emotional side of the brain.

    This course is for principals, assistant principals, deans and district administrators.  After you register for the course, please email Laurie Bennett at LABennett@washoeschools.net to receive information on creating an account with SkillPort and accessing the online sessions.
