Introduction: Are You a Manager or a Leader?

2,658 views

Published on

This introductory workshop for coordinators and heads of departments, compares new leadership skills with old management skills in the administrative office. We will look at existing structures and consider the current calls for change in educational settings. We will analyse the needs of organizations, the nature of the change process and question to what extent you and your school are on the change-ready paradigm. We will examine a number of theories through the reflective process and look at the notion of creative leadership.The thrust is on forging sound relationships through listening, developing a system of effective communication and modelling natural authority rather than authority by position.
