What is it that makes some school leaders great and others not so great? Why are some principals able to turn around their schools, when others turn around themselves and walk away from their schools, as evidenced by the exceptionally high turnover rate among school leaders? Based on a scientific analysis of decades of research and years of experience working with principals solving real problems, we’ve arrived at a simple answer: Balance.
In this engaging webinar from Bryan Goodwin, monthly contributor to Educational Leadership® magazine and lead author of the new ASCD book, Balanced Leadership for Powerful Learning: Tools for Achieving Success in Your School, you'll learn about the three key roles leaders must balance to be effective:
- Visionary strategists (providing a clear focus for improvement efforts),
- Optimistic change agents (overcoming resistance to change by inspiring others to believe better outcomes are possible), and
- Purpose-driven team builders (developing strong communities where people share goals and an abiding sense of purpose).
Goodwin will share practical strategies that self-professed ordinary people have used to become extraordinary leaders, turning what can be a nightmare job for some into a dream profession.
