You have the data, you know what your challenges are. What you don’t have are the exact steps you need to solve your biggest challenges. No fluffy “techniques” or platitudes or theories. You’ll get proven, actionable, step-by-step processes that will help you solve your biggest challenges and get everyone in your school or district on board and working towards your goals. By the time you’re done, you’ll have a complete roadmap to how you can achieve your goals for your students.
This isn’t a sit-and-get workshop. You’ll get plenty of time to actually practice what you are learning so you can be sure you’ve got it before you go back to your districts and put it into action. We keep the group small so that you’ll get Robyn’s personal coaching, feedback, and support throughout the intensive. That way, you can be sure you’re ready to act as soon as you return. Plus, we’ve built in an entire Implementation Lab to help you immediately implement what you learn at Builder’s Lab so that you can hit the ground running the moment you go home.
Learn from and with other Builders from all over the world who are going through similar challenges in their districts or schools. Find out what they’re doing, share resources, and get a fresh perspective from colleagues who share your passion and commitment for students. And, keep those connections going long after you return to your schools.
Here’s why Builders from all over the world will be joining us for Builder’s Lab 2019
You’ve looked at the data. You already know what you need to address in your school. That’s why we aren’t going to waste any time telling you that you need to transform. You already know that. Instead, we’re going to show you exactly what transformation looks like and give the exact steps you need to take to achieve your goals. By the time you leave, you’ll have your own personal roadmap you can use to make transformation happen in YOUR school or district right now.
We’ll start out with a bit of pre-work. Shortly before you arrive, you’ll be sent a short online video training that shows you exactly how to prepare for Builder’s Lab. You’ll be asked to think through your vision, mission, and core values, and your biggest challenges ahead of time so that you can be ready to hit the ground running Day one.
At the Intensive, you’ll participate in highly interactive sessions where you’ll learn and then immediately apply what you are learning to your own school or district. We’ll share some of the best teaching (including several things we have NEVER shared publicly before) to help you practice the Four Disciplines of Buildership and apply them to your biggest challenges. We’ve even added a bonus evening session on Day 2 where you can get laser coaching from from me to make sure that you are ready to apply what you are learning to your own work in your school or district.
On Day 3 you’ll take all that you’ve learned and immediately build your own Builder's Blueprint and your 90-Day Plan. Plus, you’ll get the exact steps you need to make your goals a reality.
And of course you’ll do all of this in a gorgeous water-view room right in the heart of Baltimore Harbor. We’ve also planned scrumptious breakfasts and lunches each day and plenty of breaks so that you have time to reflect on what you’re learning and regroup for the next session.
You’re trying to move your strategic plan in your district, but you need your leaders to get on board. Bring them to Builder’s Lab and give them the training they need to lead their schools towards your district’s goals. After spending three days working together, you’ll leave with team full of Builder’s who are clear about your vision, have deeper buy-in to your mission, and are inspired, energized, and empowered to move their schools and meet district goals.
You’re tasked with moving a specific initiative in your district. The challenge is how do you get others to buy in and do the work necessary to make it happen. After spending three days in Builder’s Lab, you’ll know how to get everyone in your district moving in the right direction and have an exact roadmap to making that initiative successful, plus you’ll know exactly what you need to do in the next 90 days to get unstuck and moving in the right direction.
You’ve looked at the data and you know what your challenges are. The problem is that you don’t know the steps you need to take to fix them. Come to Builder’s Lab and learn the 4 disciplines of buildership -- feedback, support, accountability, and culture. In three days you’ll have the exact blueprint you need to realize your vision and move your school forward. Plus, you’ll learn how to get your teachers and your leadership team to buy in to your vision and get moving towards your goals. And, ’if you bring members of your leadership team with you, you can use the time to work together to start implementing your blueprint right away.
As a coach, you’re in a tough position. You’re not an administrator with supervisory authority and yet, you’re something more than a teacher. In three days, you’ll discover how to support teachers when you don’t have the authority to hold them accountable. Plus, you’ll develop a coaching plan you can use to help all the teachers you serve make significant growth this year.
You’ll discover how to give teachers feedback they will actually act on, how to support teachers’ will AND skill, how to help teachers be more accountable, and how to build a school culture focused on setting and achieving big goals for students.
Plus, you’ll discover practical strategies to help you walk the fine line between encouraging and empowering your teachers to be their best and holding them accountable for the work before them.

Builder's Lab is a 3-day intensive we host every year for school and district leaders. Unlike other conferences where you see an array of speakers in short sessions and hope that you can find something you can take home and use, Builder's Lab is a 3-day intensive where you will be working on YOUR school and YOUR goals. We keep the audience under 100 people so that you can get my personal attention and help. Plus, we build in an implementation lab where you'll get a chance to actually start applying what you learn before you leave so that you are ready to implement as soon as you return to your school or district.
Builder's Lab is designed to help you get every teacher in your school or district on board and working productively towards your school or district goals. During Builder's Lab you'll:
Plus you'll get the Builder's Manual with over 100 pages of templates, tools, and resources you can use to sustain your work both during Builder's Lab and once you return to your district. And, I'm preparing an extra-special bonus for you (which I can't reveal right now but trust me, it's AMAZING!)
Builder's Lab is designed for anyone who serves in an instructional leadership role including superintendents, district staff, principles, assistant principals, and instructional coaches. Anyone who wants to improve teacher instruction and help your school or district achieve your vision and goals is welcome.
Absolutely! In fact, past attendees have told us that as valuable as Builder's Lab was for them individually, it was even MORE valuable when they were able to work through the intensive with their team members. Having that dedicated time to work together during the intensive really helped them get on the same page, develop amazing plans, and get fired up and ready to hit the ground running as soon as they returned to their districts.
Come to Builder's Lab and develop your own unique Blueprint using our principles that adapt to any system to transform your school.
All we ask is that you attend the entire first day of the Builder's Lab. If you don’t agree that this is hands-down the most thorough and useful intensive you’ve ever attended for learning how to build master teachers, just return your course materials and receive a prompt refund of your entire tuition.
