Leadership 101 (SF)

The Leadership 101 program is designed for school leaders in their first five years in positions with administrative, management, and/or supervisory responsibilities. This program helps participants demystify and develop key process skills of an effective school leader: understanding leadership style and school culture, effective communication, self-awareness, project planning, facilitation and building a following. The group examines and discusses personal experiences, case studies, and resources from experts, building a network of support and adding competencies for success in the life of an administrator.

We encourage two years of participation in this program, and we vary the topics accordingly. There will be guest speakers and opportunities for mentoring from the facilitators.

This year’s meetings will be framed around 4 central themes:
  1. How to lead from where you are: Achieve your goals by understanding your school’s culture and your place in it
    1. Identifying and analyzing organizational structures at your school, and your place in those
    2. Explore the culture of administration and leadership at your school
    3. Goal setting and benchmarking
  2. Hiring, recruiting, onboarding: Moving from reactive to strategic and finding your voice in this critical process
    1. Strategic practices in hiring and recruiting
    2. Diversity and inclusiveness in the hiring and retention process
    3. On-boarding, first year transitions, acculturation
  3. Getting Better: Growth-focused feedback and evaluation–of self and others
    1. Purpose and best practices of evaluating others and yourself
  4. Data: What’s in the numbers?  Where did those numbers come from?  Now what should we do?
    1. Understanding how data adds to your leadership narrative
    2. What do you want to accomplish from the data?  What data do I need?  How do I get it and understand it in a neutral way?
    3. Linking data to policy
