This is a presentation I gave to the heads of schools at the Quebec Association of Independent Schools in April of 2012. My thinking has evolved since then and you can read about it at http://www.yourlearningcurve.com/2013/07/networks-power-with-vs-power-over.html. Basically, I am advocating using the power structure of networks over that of a hierarchy to spearhead change in school culture. Power with is more effective than power over for authentic change.
