We’ve found most education leaders to have beautiful uphill dreams. but unfortunately, their wonderful intentions are often paired with downhill habits.
And when individuals finally find a routine that works, a lack of team clarity and consistency holds them back.
This sad reality is why we focus so much on building the right habits and systems for both individuals and teams.
We don't need to be bogged down and can lead authentically and spend our time doing what matters most.
Like us, we know you have a pretty clear why.
Our community, courses, and presentations offer you the how to make it happen!
Giving compassionate, courageous, and constructive leaders like you a how to match your why is why we created Warm Demanders in the tumultuous summer of 2020.
People want to be led by an authentic, calm, and caring leader.
Clarity always precedes competence, confidence, and creativity.
Make your management boring, so your leadership can be dynamic.
INAUTHENTICITY IS EXHAUSTING
The price of being inauthentic is simply too high.
Unfortunately, many education leaders don't know how to lead true to themselves and become exhausted trying to play a role one minute and switch to a completely different persona the next.
It took time and a lot of trial and error learning, but we both got to a place where we could lead authentically.
TRUE TO YOURSELF
Fast-forward many years later ...
We created Warm Demanders to help a new wave of leaders embrace their belief in joyful accountability and avoid a trip to the School of Hard Knocks.
We’ll help you eliminate the overwhelm and guesswork out of leadership so you and your team can grow.
Imagine yourself with more time for conversations, leading impactful meetings, and feeling like you're the same person at home, with friends, and at work.
"Thank you for sharing your thoughtful wisdom and expertise! Your schools were so blessed to have your leadership!"

HI, I'M AUBREY
Our Warm Demanders team of experienced school and district leaders have many characteristics and experiences in common.
We started Warm Demanders in the summer of 2020 and there's one key problem that kept surfacing at every meeting: we all struggled with the traditional expectations for school and district administrators.
You know ... the paradigm that admin needs to be transactional or authoritarian.
That's simply not who we are and we're all proud to be outliers in this regard.
One day, Melody suggested that we do something remarkable for people like us to try to help people like you - leaders who believe in being kind, respectful, and calm, while also pushing themselves and others to be the best they can be. (we're assuming if you got this far, you're one of us!)
And now we've found you.
Whether you join us or find what you need in our free resources, I hope you'll feel welcome and these warm vibes to your people.☀️
