Today’s school leaders are expected not only to be academic thought leaders but also to be effective leaders setting vision and strategy, creating change and managing the teams necessary to improve their schools and build a successful school community. This new program offered at the Kellogg School of Management will provide school leaders (including principals, assistant principals, superintendents, lead teachers, board meetings, executive directors of education based nonprofits) with theories, tools and tactics to build their leadership capacity and support their ability to move their schools to greater success.
Combining the rigor of academic faculty with the expertise of nonprofit practitioners, this three day program will provide school leaders with leading edge theory in leadership, strategy and change management along with key lessons in using data to make decisions, managing conflict in and among their teams.
Key Learning Objectives:
- To improve the ability to think strategically about the school and match vision with a strategy for success;
- To enhance leadership capabilities including conflict resolution, team building and others;
- To better understand theories of change and the barriers to managing change in the school;
- To learn to use data to make decisions and the role that data plays in building a successful school community;
- To build a network of peers and mentors to support continued professional growth and development
Participants are encouraged to come as a team to this program and we have special pricing available for teams. This team could include principals, assistant principals, board members, and key instructional leaders. This unique educational experience provides an opportunity for school leaders to network with each other as well as to learn from leading experts in management. Team participation is strongly encouraged - Tuition cost: $475 for first registrant, $350 for each additional team member
