Ontario Leadership Framework The Ontario Leadership Framework (OLF) describes successful individual and small group practices for both school and system leaders, as well as effective organizational practices at both school and system levels. In addition, the OLF now includes a section entitled Personal Leadership Resources. This section distils evidence about leadership traits and dispositions most likely to influence the effectiveness with which leadership practices are enacted. These resources are intended to be especially relevant for purposes of leadership recruitment and selection

What are the skills that students need to be successful in this rapidly changing world and what competencies do school leaders need, in turn, to effectively focus on those outcomes as leaders of learning? Whether we refer to this path as student-centric, personalized learning, or differentiated instruction..., what we do know is that these new paths will continue to evolve, and that technology and innovation will take root in new models that will require us to grow and change how we teach and lead.
