Training for Polish Dalton Consultants

I am invited to work with all Polish Dalton Consultants on the tuning of the Dalton implementation they give in schools.
Many schools in Poland like to know more about Dalton education.
This team of consultants is involved in a training process, mostly with an official Dalton certificate as a result.
In the coming period we come together to work out a new structure of modules.

A great platform to connect the big group of Dalton schools in the Netherlands.

Leaders eat last

Leaders are the ones who run headfirst into the unknown.
They rush toward danger.
They put their own interestsaside to protect us or to pull us into the future.
Leaders would sooner sacrifice what is theirs to save what is ours.
And they would never sacrifice what is ours to save what is theirs.
This is what it means to be a leader.
It means they choose to go first into danger, headfirst toward the unknown.
And when we feel sure they will keep us safe, we will march behind them and work tirelessly to see their visions come to life and proudly call ourselves their followers.

Are you a leader?

From the cover of "Leaders eat last" by Simon Sinek
