SCL Conference 2015

ABSTRACT:

Growing schools are complex institutions that require strong leadership in order to thrive. Often school growth, even under the best of circumstances, creates stress and tension for every constituent within the community. This session will explore how the Head of School can develop a leadership team that is able to communicate effectively, adapt to their circumstances, provide adequate support to teachers, and articulate an inspiring vision for the future.
