If you are a new Lasallian leader, then head to the NEWCOMERS page first, and then the EDUCATORS page. These will provide some the basics. For a current Lasallian leader, those same pages will be a good review of foundational resources and information. This page highlights resources that are of interest to Lasallian leaders, both for themselves and for those they are leading.
The recommended programs under the ONLINE section on ths page are wonderful introductions to the larger Lasallian family. The Buttimer Institute is a "must" for new leaders who have responsibility for the spiritual leadership of the school (Just ask Lasallian leaders who have attended it). The recommendations under the PRINT section on this page are resources that will help you come to a deeper appreciation of what this whole thing is all about.
No Lasallian leader becomes or stays a Lasallian leader without intentional pursuit of deepening his/her own understanding of Lasallian history, pedagogy, and spirituality. This is done best through active engagment with other Lasallians, both local and regional. Personal reading, school conversations, preparing presentations, and the like further enhance the learning curve. Inviting your leadership teams to engage in focused conversations can be very helpful to everyone in the Lasallian community, including you.
