Prepared to Serve

Waldorf Board Training

Dear Colleagues,

We are pleased to announce that registration is open for our Board Training series Prepared to Serve - The Art of Waldorf School Governance. Thanks to those who responded to the “Save the Dates” information sent out two weeks ago. For those of you who did not see the flyer, I have included it with this email. The link below will take to the registration and you can sign up for what we anticipate will be an exciting series of presentations, discussion and networking for our Waldorf School boards across North America.

Keep in mind the following highlights as you get ready to register:

  1. Registrations are open for the winter, spring sessions.

  2. The discounts offered are for all participants from the same school for the same series: the first participant pays $500 and each additional participant pays $400.

  3. If you are interested in your entire board receiving the training as a group at the same time, please contact me and I will arrange the best time for your school.

  4. Each group of 3 sessions is the same offering with some variation depending on the presenters.

Please let me know if you have any questions or comments. You can reach me by email at

We look forward to seeing you soon.

Warm regards,

Reflections from participants in the fall courses

The board training gave me more confidence in my role as a board leader and Lisa and Michael are lovely to work with.

A solid introductory board training led by deeply experienced and dedicated facilitators. Highly recommended for new board members (as part of their board orientation) as well as veteran board members (to reconnect with and remember the big picture as well as the details).

I see this training as a potential seed of a rich and dynamic network of those serving on Waldorf boards, which could potentially make a big difference in the Waldorf movement.

For new and more experienced board members, this workshop provides valuable tools and ideas to help us all serve with more compassion and creativity.

I highly recommend that all Board members take this training, even if you have a lot of experience being on a Waldorf School Board. The content is comprehensive but not overwhelming and the discussion was extremely helpful and inspiring. It was hugely valuable to meet with Board members from schools across the country. I also came out of the training with a greater sense of connection to the whole and that there is a much larger support system out there that can be tapped into.
