Heads’ Retreat
January 20-22, 2020
Laguna Beach, CA


An annual highlight of the CESA calendar, Member of Council and Provisional School Heads of School and their spouses are invited to gather in Laguna Beach this January to refresh their minds, bodies, and souls at this annual Retreat.  Registration for Member of Council heads opens September 1st, 2019; Candidate Schools may begin registration on October 1st, 2019.  Spaces available at this event are limited to maintain the conversational nature of this Retreat.  The Heads’ Retreat is different than other conferences.  Our time together is designed to promote informal dialogue, build relationships, and join like-minded Christian school leaders and their spouses together to support and encourage one another.  

This year, we are honored to have Dr. Sydney Finklestein, author of Superbosses: How Exceptional Leaders Master the Flow of Talent, with us to help CESA Heads of School consider how their own leadership styles and strengths can be leveraged to catalyze the growth of a new generation of quality Christian school leaders.  Your registration includes a copy of Superbosses.

Sydney Finkelstein is the Steven Roth Professor of Management at the Tuck School of Business at Dartmouth College, where he teaches courses on Leadership and Strategy.  He also has experience working with executives at Dartmouth and other prestigious universities around the world. He holds degrees from Concordia University and the London School of Economics, as well as a Ph.D. from Columbia University in strategic management.  Click here to read more about Dr. Finklestein.
