a conversation series on leading with leaders

Leaders find the walls and place the ladders.

About the series

“Place the Ladder” is a conversation series between dynamic Texan leaders and Holdsworth’s president, Dr. Lindsay Whorton. The talks explore people’s lived experiences based on the idea that leadership is not a skill people are born with—it can be learned, explored, and studied.

Driven by the belief that teachers and students thrive with great leadership, The Holdsworth Center builds stronger leaders for Texas public schools. Founded as a nonprofit in 2017 by H-E-B Chairman Charles Butt, Holdsworth provides world-class leadership development programs and services within districts and at its Campus on Lake Austin, a one-of-a-kind place dedicated to the idea that public education holds worth.

When educators come to The Holdsworth Center for learning sessions, they leave with strategies and tools to help them become stronger leaders and deliver better results for students.

Investing in public education leaders makes a difference. Not just for them, but for the staff, students, families and communities they serve and influence.
