Background: Margaret Waddington left Vermont schools a great gift – one that could transform school leadership within a decade. The late Dr. Margaret Waddington was one of the many individuals transformed by CCL’s flagship Leadership Development Program (LDP)®. So much so that the pioneering neurologist and resident of Rutland became a strong financial supporter of CCL and upon her passing in 2015, entrusted the organization with a multimillion dollar estate gift to ensure ongoing access to leadership development for women, men, and the young people of Vermont. You can learn more about all of the leadership cohorts, and connections since 2016 at the Waddington Leadership Initiative: VPA Homepage.
Overview: Thanks to the Waddington Leadership Initiative, the overall cost of these workshops for VPA member organizations is reduced by more than half. Each of the following workshops is available to members and their faculties and/or their leadership teams. The workshops each come with specific participant materials from the Center for Creative Leadership and will be facilitated by VPA leadership.

The Step Up to Conflict workshop is developed by the Center for Creative Leadership (CCL®) in collaboration with the Eckerd College Leadership Development Institute, a valued partner of CCL for over 30 years.
We believe that:
This workshop is based on CCL’s extensive analysis of field work in the areas of leadership, leadership development, and organizational leadership that led to CCL’s proven Direction, Alignment, Commitment (DAC) framework. DAC enables individuals to work together as a cohesive group to produce collective results — results they could never achieve working as individuals.
This workshop focuses on 6 boundary spanning practices to provide leaders with the skills to increase collaboration, tear down organizational silos, and mitigate turf wars to increase productivity, efficiency, and innovation.
This workshop provides tools and skills to become more learning agile. Learning and applying the 4 components of CCL’s approach to learning agility will put participants on the path to making the most from experiences and position them to succeed when faced with new, challenging situations.
