LEADING CHANGE IN THE 21st CENTURY
This session is designed to help educational leaders understand how people, including themselves, react to change and how they may use this knowledge and other leadership skills to lead people to make appropriate changes. It emphasizes that educational leaders must first understand and accept their own feelings about change before they can assist others in venturing into educational reform. Further, this session includes the “four problems” that all educational leaders face in leading change and how to improve the chances of successful change implementation through specific interventions to address these problems. Relevant exercises allow the educational leaders to react to simulated change situations and discuss their reactions with colleagues.
