Leadership Dialogues: Conversations and Activities for Leadership Teams


1 - 2 weeks availability


Leadership Dialogues is based on two basic assumptions. Firstly, dialogue, conversation, reflection and challenge are undamental aspects of effective learning and developing personal understanding. Secondly school leaders do not have sufficient time to engage in these activities - they are always the first casualties. Designed to provide stimulus materials for school leaders to support their personal development, Leadership Dialogues encourages personal reflection, dialogue witha coach or mentor and conversations in leadership teams. It includes short think pieces, case studies, diagnostic reviews, selected quotations on a particular theme and questions for discussion and reflection. The content is clustered into the following 8 themes: * Effective leadership * Thinking strategically * Leading innovation and change * Leading teaching and learning * Leading and managing resources * Leading people * Collaboration * Engaging with students, parents and community. The book comes with a free CD-ROM of printable resources.
