Leading and Teaching 2022

Notice reference #: 1HAR_Q

Teacher leadership happens every day, with children, colleagues, and management.

Why do we feel that we need to apply the word leader to only certain teachers? One reason is that most of us think of a leader as someone who takes on additional roles. The perception that "regular" teachers are not leaders is reinforced by historical patterns of management.

Yet effective teaching is leadership.  Leadership in centres means holding fast to the vision within the learning community and taking actions, small and large, to create real opportunities, improvements and growth for children, families, colleagues, and community members.

In this in-depth workshop every teacher will be encouraged and inspired to grow their leadership skills.

Participants will explore:

  • The five practices of exemplary leaders
  • Assessment of current leadership qualities
  • Character strengths and virtues
  • The educational leadership capabilities
  • The ability to adjust and change your leadership style to the person and situation
  • The three components to becoming a ‘gifted leader’
  • Bravery – what it takes to think, behave, and live to make a difference and to have courageous conversations using radical candour
  • Leadership evaluation criteria as defined by the Education Review Office
  • Personality types and considerations when choosing your next leader
  • The seven core behaviours of honourable leaders.
