Al Adams is nationally acknowledged for the wisdom and insights he brings to the head:trustee partnership. He is also known for the innovative perspectives with which he approaches the challenges of independent schools’ positioning in the educational market place and their need to achieve long-term financial sustainability. Al’s work, guiding heads and their boards and serving as a 1:1 advisor to heads, is informed by his 45-year career of building and leading exemplary schools while generously sharing what he has learned along the way through workshops, conferences and his incisive “theory to practice” writings. Widely recognized as a thought leader, especially in the areas of school leadership, diversity (access/inclusion/success) and private schools having public purpose, Al helps heads and boards move beyond “best practices” to “fresh practices” that are attuned to the demands, prospects and possibilities of the modern era.
