ABOUT THIS ONLINE SUMMER INSTITUTE
This leadership institute is aimed at building the skills of educators who supervise and support teams at their schools. Through a neurobiology and social science research lens, we can deepen our understanding of the critical factors needed to create environments that support individual and organizational resiliency. Through this two-day deep dive we will explore the benefits and limitations of different leadership styles, communication styles, and the critical role of emotional intelligence in leadership particularly during COVID-19. Ultimately, we will develop skills and understandings to create a school culture where all educators can thrive.
- Application of different leadership styles and competencies specific to today's world
- Understanding of how to facilitate positive cultures of feedback and open dialogue
- Recognition of indicators of individual and organizational resilience
- Reflection on strategies to navigate through the uncertainty and challenges of today's world
