Workshop Title: Maximizing Leadership for Change
Summary: Powerful push and pull factors are forcing current education systems to dramatically change, and are placing radically new demands on leaders at all levels. The push factors are boredom of students, alienation of teachers, and relentless expectations and accountability from the public for greater performance. The pull factors are new learning modes that are intrinsic to the human condition (intrinsically meaningful learning, and working with others), and the allure of the digital world.
Fullan’s workshop at the Marriott Harbourfront on April 11th was a great success. Michael partnered with the Ontario Principal’s Association, Nova Scotia Educational Leadership Consortium (NSELC) and Debbie Davidson Consulting to work with over 200 talented and inspired educators. Handouts and the Study Guide are available for download under the ‘Resourses’ tab.
Do your school reform efforts frequently sputter or stall? In this indispensable sequel to the bestseller Motion Leadership, Michael Fullan shares the real-life strategies and results of educators who have used motion leadership to propel entire organizations and systems forward. Success stories from around the world illustrate how educators can use a small number of specific actions to generate momentum for lasting change.
Motion Leadership in Action addresses:
- Creating and leading movement in the right direction and at the right time
- Implementing a “ready-fire-aim” mindset
- Emphasizing the importance of collaboration
- Forging relationships while handling resistance and
- Establishing your change stance in order to get better results.
