The School Leadership Toolkit

Stop managing and start leading!


Focus on the areas in your school that will actually help you build
a collaborative culture

  • Were you the superstar teacher?
  •  Did all the parents and kids love you?
  •  Were you incredible in the classroom?

AWESOME! That is most likely what got you into this position as the school leader.

But as my good friend Marshall Goldsmith stated,

“What got you HERE won’t get you THERE”

As the school leader you MUST focus on other areas and build a completely different skill set than you needed as a teacher.

Without these skills you are trapped chasing your tail and putting out fires all days.

And it isn’t your fault.

No one teaches you this before you take the reins. You’re left to your own device and wonder why it is so difficult and if you’re cut out for this?

Luckily I’ve created the School Leadership ToolKit!

For a limited time, you can grab this bundle for just $97!


What’s inside the School Leadership ToolKit?

Tool #1: The Parent Partnership Blueprint
($97 Value)

The partnership between teacher and parent is so valuable. It’s the bedrock of the success of the school.

  • Happy parents = parents coming back
  • Parent coming back = better referrals
  • More referrals = full classrooms

If you want this – then you need to get the Parent Partnership Blueprint. It will walk you through a simple way your teachers can consistently add to the emotional bank account of every parent without it taking hours of work.


I walk you through:

  • HOW to introduce it to your staff?
  • HOW to get their buy-in?

As a school leader, you need to have conversations with teachers all the time about:

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!
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.

Barbara LabotkaDirector, Cardinal Bernardin Early Childhood Center

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!


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.
