Leadership and Management for School Principals

Table of Contents

Description

Is leadership an inborn trait? Many believe that either you are born to be a leader, or you are not. Luckily, however, leadership can be learned.

Some leading behavior is more appropriate to situations of some kind, and leaders are those who know what to do, and when. While some may look more apt to lead, everyone can acquire such capacity in the end.

The course will give participants a rich context to identify their leadership style and practice a variety of leadership core skills such as planning, communication, problem-solving, and conflict management.

The participant will reflect upon what tasks are easier for them as leaders, and what are harder. They will focus on what their values are, and on how to convey them to colleagues and followers. Moreover, they will practice their communication skills to be more effective in saying no, delegating, and promoting others’ growth.

Participants will also discuss the difference between intrinsic and extrinsic motivation, and identify strategies to promote the former over the latter. Finally, they will work on their social skills, and practice empathy, active listening, and conflict management.

The course is intended for school principals and deputies. It will grant participants much time to learn about each other’s school environment and discuss the issues and challenges from their different educational settings and systems.

By the end of the course, participants will be more aware of their strengths as leaders, and more confident in working on their weaknesses to improve their capacity as school leaders.
