Affirmations for Tom

Tom Franz is an incredibly powerful coach for school and business leaders. His ability to listen, provide feedback, and ultimately allow individuals to make decisions on their own terms is exceptional. As a strategic planner and visionary, Tom took an already highly effective school to its next iteration, making the school stronger while still maintaining its Mission and core values. A high level of integrity, deep knowledge of systems, and genuine care for others make Tom a highly valuable and sought-after mentor and coach for both aspiring and seasoned leaders.

Tom Franz is an outstanding educational leader with many years of experience leading school accreditation teams. Through his experience as a head of school, Tom has a great ability to relate to the schools he supports in the accreditation process. Tom understands the big picture goals of accreditation but also knows the importance of providing impactful feedback to schools that assists them in growing and improving. Tom always has a focus on the school’s mission and how that mission can be further developed and enhanced. It is has been my pleasure to work with Tom and learn so much about the difference in schools and how schools should embrace their uniqueness. I highly recommend Tom as a consultant for a school’s accreditation needs.

Tracy Onze - Head of Middle School

One of the most rewarding experiences of my career, thus far, was participating in a Thought Partner Improvement Visit for our Advancement Department, led by Tom Franz.  He brought unique perspectives to the group and challenged each participant to think differently.  He has a remarkable way of bringing a group together in strategic discussion and can articulate more sides of a discussion than you even knew existed. With his guidance, expertise, partnership and thoughtful curiosity- we left our time together affirmed, inspired and with recommendations and a plan to meet the challenges ahead.
