Change is the transition towards meeting our school improvement goals. Change is part of the growth process, and is inevitable to increase productivity and student achievement, yet most people resist change. In order to reduce stress and increase results, an organization must understand all facets of change and its benefits for long tern success. In this academy, participants will determine their personality/leadership style, and gain an awareness of their leadership style as it relates to motivation, communication and decision making. Participants will learn to identify and apply appropriate strategies to overcome resistance to change.

All registration changes must be received in writing by the IPA. An individual who is registered for an IPA event and who is unable to attend may: (1) send another individual in his or her place incurring no service charge; (2) receive credit in the amount of the event which is good for all IPA events and merchandise; or (3) receive a refund. Credits and refunds will be issued as follows: if written notice is received more than five business days prior to the event, the refund or credit amount will be subject to a $25.00 service charge.
