Are You Running a School or Leading a Learning Organization?
Too often our work as district and school leaders gets caught in the day-to-day management of our buildings, and we miss opportunities for strong instructional leadership. Our buildings are well-run, but we lose our flow as true learning organizations. Reflect on the management traps that cloud your vision and inhibit your instructional leadership, including when and why such distractions occur. Collaborate with participants on strategies to regain focus as instructional leaders and sustain this focus over time without sacrificing managerial performance. Deepen your understanding of learning culture and explore opportunities to strengthen school/district culture in a way that contributes to continuous growth, including shared vision, systems thinking, mental models, team learning, and personal mastery.
