Workshop Synopsis

Old forms of authority and "command and control" lines of authority don't work in the twenty-first century. This means that leading a school and growing a faculty is more challenging today than ever before. Principals need to understand curriculum and instruction but those are not the most important keys to the leadership puzzle! In this workshop we will look at individual power and assess our own power bases, and focus on strategies to use in building school climate, creating faculty collegiality, goal-setting, and parent communication.

1. Participants will have an understanding of their leadership styles and strengths
2. Participants will learn the four components of collegiality
3. Participants will develop strategies for teaching of the collegiality components
4. Participants will learn the six components of organizational climate
5. Participants will develop strategies for teaching each of the culture components.
