Experienced Administrators: Leading by Design
BATDC’s long-standing Experienced Administrators’ Group focuses this year on school leadership by intention and design (rather than by contention and crisis management). Participants will assemble four mornings across the year to plumb and investigate three distinct domains of professional practice:
- Knowing yourself in your job
- Engaging difficult relationships
- Collaborating in ‘project consultancy teams’ on the on-going initiatives of participants
Whatever your project or problem this year, we will tap our collective experience and wisdom to help orient and support you in meaningful and practical ways. This group is especially well suited for division heads, deans, assistant heads, and department chairs – anyone charged with ‘leading from the middle’ in an independent school. We encourage those who have been in leadership roles for three years or more to join with others in the group who return year after year because the network of support and friendship is sustaining and powerful.
