BCSL Hosts SOAR Leadership Workshop

The George and Barbara Bush Center for Scholars and Leaders recently hosted the first Houston Christian High School SOAR Leadership Workshop led by Mr. Bill Peel, Houston Christian Board Member and Executive Director for Innovation and Strategic Planning for Mays Business School at Texas A&M University and Dr. ‘Jon Jasperson, Assistant Dean and Clinical Professor for Mays Business School at Texas A&M University.

SOAR is a strategic thinking, planning, and leading framework focusing on strengths, opportunities, aspirations, and results. Our student participants worked collaboratively alongside the presenters to apply the SOAR framework to the strategic challenge, “What are creative and innovative ideas for advancing experiential learning at Houston Christian High School?” The positive approach of the SOAR model generated opportunities for students to celebrate Houston Christian’s many strengths and imagine new possibilities. Students walked away better equipped to be capable, innovative, and positive leaders. Mustangs leading the way!
