Leadership Development - Principals and Deputy Principals, Primary and Post Primary
DATE: 15th October 2019 TIME: 1pm to 5.30pm VENUE: Clare Education Centre
Worshop outline School leadership is a hugely demanding job with on-going change a fact of everyday life. People in leadership are conscious of huge expectations on them and searching for ways to manage stress and share the burden of leadership.
We are also in a transition period as we move from hierarchical models to more participative, collaborative, team-based models that enable, empower and develop people.
In this workshop, we want to look at a practical framework for thinking about how we can be effective around change, at how we can handle conflict and some of the destructive dynamics around leaders, and at ways to survive and stay in good shape as leaders.
