Today’s school leadership teams are expected to articulate and communicate vision and strategy as well as motivate and mentor a diverse, talented workforce, all while inspiring others to build a strong, sustainable culture of achieving high standards of academic excellence. At the same time, effective educational leaders need to deepen their own skills to fulfill their personal leadership potential. This newly designed program will allow participants to enhance and deepen their management and leadership skills and help them lead with a more compelling sense of mission and purpose.
Combining the research of academic faculty with the expertise of nonprofit practitioners, this newly-designed, three day program will provide school leaders with leading edge theory in investing, maintaining and leveraging social capital, in taking a different approach to changing minds and behavior within their teams and the broader school community and looking introspectively at their own personal executive presence. This exciting educational experience provides an opportunity for school leaders to network and share best practices and challenges with each other.
