The
Leadership

Academy

In an effort to support its members, BPAA has established a Leadership Academy in conjunction with Manage2Lead. The Leadership Academy is facilitated by Sharon Airaghi, President of Manage2Lead, who has extensive experience as an educator and administrator with Broward County Schools.  She brings a wealth of knowledge about leadership, mentoring, building relationships, and customer service to our organization. BPAA truly understands that leaders today work in a very fast-paced, complex, and demanding environment. They must have the skills to lead their school while simultaneously managing all operations. Administrators are required to manage the day-to-day operations of their schools, motivate teachers and staff to perform at their highest level to ensure results, and make sense of the new ever-changing demands while demonstrating that they have a competitive edge. The BPAA Leadership Academy will provide administrators with the tools and support necessary to become high-performing leaders.  It will also offer support and coaching to identify leaders who may need assistance navigating their careers into the desired direction; thus building and sustaining strong, positive leaders for BPAA and the SBBC.
