Conscious Emotional Intelligence

Keith is currently a partner at Noble Story Group and the Founder of The National Fellowship for Black and Latino Male Educators (NFBLME). Prior to his current roles, for sixteen years, Keith served communities as a teacher, assistant principal, and most recently as a founding school principal. Under Keith’s leadership, his school boasted some of the highest academic gains in the city.

In this unscripted conversation with host, Tony Saccardi, Keith will talk about: 

  • How to develop the prerequisite internal and interpersonal skills and mindsets to engage in equity centered dialogue across lines of identity, power, and privilege 
  • Building your awareness of and practice leading from your vision, values, and standards for equity-centered leadership 
  • Exploring leaders in a system by raising their self-awareness about contributing to the system’s bias and develop strategies to “do something different” to increase equity in that system 
  • We will explore how bias shows up in our leadership and develop INCLUSIVE LEADERSHIP strategies to create SET-UP-TO-WIN conditions.

The conversation is scheduled for 30 minutes and the final 15 minutes will be reserved for Q&A.
