where teachers readily share ideas and everyone is offering input and strategizing together.
that is a delight to walk into and a pleasure to walk out of.
where everyone feels at ease and can be themselves, and there is a clear agenda with goals and results

EVERYONE takes action
without you running around after them for days or weeks on end.

One-on-one coaching with Chanie has been helpful in so many ways. Chanie has helped us identify the reasons for some of the challenges we are experiencing, set goals to help fix or solve those problems and create benchmarks to help us reach those goals. Even though Chanie isn’t physically in my building she has guided me in becoming a better leader and in making instrumental changes in my role as Early Childhood Director. Her feedback and accountability has kept me on track and enabled me to achieve my goals!Talia Levine
I've been part of the Inner Circle for a year and it's been transformative! Chanie provides amazing framework and systems to implement that streamline processes and create accountability which contribute to a better overall culture in the school.Hannah WilliamsDirector, Georgia
Since joining the Inner Circle, I am more proactive. I am more engaged with my staff and encourage and empower them. I do not try to "solve" the issue for them, but I am asking questions to help them solve the issues for themselves. They love the ownership this gives them and without a doubt they are happier!Barbara LabotkaDirector, Cardinal Bernardin Early Childhood Center
What surprised me was how quickly I am able to implement what I have learned and how much more confident I am in my leadership abilities.
I must give credit and a very big shout out to a woman who has dramatically helped me transform [my school] and myself, professionally and personally, in just a few months. The value, strategies, guidance and support I have received from Chanie Wilschanski and the Inner Circle have helped me in becoming the most effective leader who has created, maintained and continues to grow a healthy culture with the best team of teachers any director could wish for.Melissa Agnes VasquezDirector, New Wonders Learning Center
I’ve seen a huge transformation in my culture since implementing what I’ve learned in the Director’s Inner Circle—teachers are solving their own problems!AsfaDirector
The amount of feedback from parents has been extremely positive since i’ve implemented the tools in the inner circle. It’s helped me continue to build strong relationships and trust with each parent. So many wonderful comments from parents who have been here for a long time about how 'smoothly' things are going this year, which is great.Alison PhilipsDirector
Since working with Chanie, I have developed a great culture of communication with almost all of our parents and have gotten really specific with my weekly check-ins with parents, which allows for more meaningful discussions.Chrissy CarterDirector
