Program 1

Skill development workshops for education leaders - TEF offers rigorous workshops aimed at building leadership capabilities to effectively address tough issues, make sound decisions, find cause of unexpected performance, and successfully implement changes and initiatives. We also provide advanced workshops teaching leaders how to facilitate others in the resolution of complex issues and/or how to teach these skills to district and school personnel. Online learning for teachers and students - www.yourtake.org and its dynamic, online learning tool, SCAN, provide an interactive way for teachers to help teens learn and apply collaborative problem-solving. Teachers select lessons and set up sessions where students work collaboratively in applying a proven approach for understanding complex situations. Three lessons are available anyone to try. Nominally-priced annual school subscriptions provide access to the full lesson library (over 120 lessons) and complete functionality.

Principal Officer

Dr. Kathryn Blackburn

BIO

Kathy Blackburn joined the Forum in 2001, bringing over 25 years of experience in a large urban district as classroom teacher, principal and district leader. At Orange Country Public Schools (Orlando, FL) she personally and repeatedly experienced the power of using analytic process to facilitate and implement collaborative solutions to complex district-wide issues and has seen first-hand the benefits of providing these skills to students. She served four years on the Florida Commission on School Reform and Accountability. Kathy received her B.S. degree from the University of Florida, her M.Ed. from Rollins College and her Ed.D. from the University of Central Florida.

STATEMENT FROM THE Principal Officer

"At the heart of all we do, is a fundamental belief in the amazing things that people can accomplish when given the skills, opportunity and support.

It was once considered a radical conviction: good thinking is a learned skill - not an innate ability reserved for the lucky few. It's now become standard practice for tens of millions of employees and managers. 60+ years ago, Ben Tregoe and Chuck Kepner started a thinking revolution based on these same beliefs. The Kepner-Tregoe best practices have improved thinking and operational effectiveness for organizations and governments from around the world. TregoeED's founder, Ben Tregoe, used to say, "The computer on our shoulders is the most important computer we will ever have." Why then, don't we invest even more in it? We are leaving our most precious natural resource under-utilized and undeveloped.

Common sense need not be uncommon. People can consistently make effective judgments given the right skills and support. Our workshops and consulting build the capacity of your most precious resource - your people. We help people use data more adeptly, collaborate more successfully and develop lasting and effective solutions to urgent or long-standing problems.

As Kepner and Tregoe always led by their Basic Beliefs, so do we:

Basic Beliefs
Thinking well is an acquired skill that everyone has the capability to learn, model and teach to others.
•Problem solving and continuous learning have more to do with asking the right questions than providing the right answers.
•The people most affected by a problem are those best able to develop and implement solutions.
•It is essential to involve others in problem-solving in order to produce the highest quality results and gain the necessary commitment—even though this involvement may add complexity.
•Enduring improvement requires commitment, effort, and persistence.
•Technology will never replace the need for excellence of human thought and action.

Building the problem-solving and decision-making capacity of your leaders is renewable energy at its finest. We are committed to the lasting, permanent change that is possible for all your leaders when you "teach a man to fish."
