Last year Brooke Carroll and I brought our combined experiences of Assistant Head of Lower School, Member of Senior Administration, Middle School Head, Head of School, Director of Student Support, a counselor for all ages and supervising faculty and staff at all levels to a management skills program for New and Emerging School Leaders".
Due to the immensely positive feedback, we are launching the program again with updates including webinar sessions. We believe by understanding how and why people act in systems and learning practical management strategies, leaders will be more effective and will feel confident working with and supervising others. This professional development course will facilitate growth in educational leader’s skills and abilities in managing their work, the people they supervise, and themselves.
The 2017-18 Management Skills for New Leaders Program offers:
Six workshops provided through webinar
Personalized coaching sessions throughout the year
Digital libraries and workbooks for each module
Optional school visits
Connection, collaboration, and support from group of professionals in similar career stages
Participants will conclude the year with specific supervisory strategies; tools for conversations with colleagues, supervisees, parents, and students; and confidence in their abilities. Participants will also receive a certificate of completion and recommendations for professional profiles.
Topics to be addressed:
Engaging in mindful leadership
Understanding roles and responsibilities
Managing work, time, and people
Navigating challenging conversations
Every session includes diversity and inclusion and work/life balance
