Leadership Mindsets for School Leaders in 2022
“During Covid-19 many have developed a strong sense of learned hopelessness.
The time has come for creating instances of learned hopefulness.”
Michael Fullan, May 2021
"Complex problems like pandemics, climate change, and political polarization call on us to stay mentally flexible. In the face of any number of unknown and evolving threats, humility, doubt, and curiosity are vital to discovery. Bold, persistent experimentation might be our best tool for rethinking."
Adam Grant, Think Again, 2021
Adam Grant is a professor at the Wharton School and a top thought leader globally. His new book, Think Again: The Power of Knowing What You Don't Know is a must read and should be required reading for all school leaders.
“Either you will be agile or you are going to race to the bottom. If you race to the bottom – you might win.”
“The schools we walked out of won’t be the same schools we walk back into when this is all over. Our schools won’t just be different, they’ll be better.”
Weston Keischnick's (author of Bold School) webinar for ICLE and AASA is one of those must watch webinars for school leaders. He inspires optimism and challenges education leaders to demonstrate courageous leadership.
LEADERSHIP TEAM'S BOLD AGENDA
"Make sure your leadership team truly leads – setting aside the time and energy to define a bold agenda and launch the ambitious initiatives that your future relies on. Failing to do that will be a costly mistake. Succeed and you will have a powerful team that can position your organization to thrive in an increasingly complex world."
Harvard Business Review, January-February 2022, Paul Leinwand, Mahadeva Matt Mani, and Blair Sheppard “Reinventing Your Leadership Team – Your Organization’s Future Depends on Getting this Right”
