Participants will explore the Six Styles of Leadership, identify their particular style and unpack their strengths and weaknesses against their style. Group activities are designed to identify the key behaviours of a participant’s individual Leadership style and then plan how best to apply these behaviours in their school context.
This course explores leadership style; wellness; change implementation, management and establishing collaborative effective teams within schools. Participants will be reviewing particular areas of research and how the implementation of the research can lead to becoming a more effective leader. Practical elements of each workshop will enable participants to unpack concepts, role play, reflect and refine practice before trialling back in real situations. Each participant will identify one key area of change they have selected to make back in their respective schools. The spacing of the course will provide participants time to implement some of the strategies from the practical elements of the course and then report back to the group for a debrief of what worked and what didn’t.
Day one: Monday 30 July
Day two: Monday 20 August
Day three: Wednesday 12 September
Between the Day 1 and 2 sessions participants will have a four-week period in which to implement and practice elements of the course. The Day 2 session will provide an opportunity to reflect, evaluate and adjust implementation of the practical elements of the course. The course will support participants in determining values of successful leadership and empowering them to begin implementing strategies explored during the course. A Blog will be established so participants can support each other between sessions.
Within six weeks of completing the final Day 3 session of the course participants will be asked to present a 500 word reflection of the implementation of their individually identified change.
