SHAPING EXECUTIVE LEADERSHIP
This leadership development session provides educational leaders an opportunity to examine what has gone on in their lives, both personally and professionally, that has “shaped” them into the leaders that they are today. They will examine the components of their “learning grain” and how the shaping process helps them lead effectively and how it sometimes causes them to be less effective than they could be. This session also helps educational leaders take advantage of past experiences through reflection on past practices, a process that has been used by successful leaders. Educational leaders will reflect on significant events in past personal and work lives to examine how these experiences have changed and influenced their lives. Then they will explore how they can use past and future experiences, as well as other information from assessment feedback, to enhance self-understanding and formulate appropriate learning strategies and tactics for future success. This session is based on research which pertains to the differences between highly effective leaders versus those leaders who have derailed.
