This highly interactive leadership program provides opportunity for personal skill development and shared-learning between participants.
Participants will reflect on contemporary theories affecting leadership effectiveness: emotional intelligence, distributed leadership, self-reflective practice and social style, and relate these theories to their own professional practice.
Relationship-building skills will include: active listening and coaching, debriefing, offering and requesting constructive feedback, being assertive, conducting challenging conversations, conflict resolution and managing staff with entrenched negativity.
Self-organisational skills will include: direction setting and planning, project management, time management and self pacing.
A set of resilience skills will provide coping strategies which can help leaders to manage the personal and professional demands of working in a challenging educational setting.
During the enrolment process you will be required to answer some questions which will provide additional information to allow the presenters to shape the presentation to ensure it meets the needs of the participants.
