Effective partnerships: Running the school when the buck doesn’t stop with you

Log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

Feedback form is now closed.
You’re charged with the excellence of the education of your school and everything that entails  - but the buck doesn’t stop with you. You’re responsible for the success of your students and teachers, but you report to people who may have goals that don’t support your pedagogical responsibilities. It’s a precarious but not uncommon situation. Carrie Wilson and Angela Pohlen have over 25 years of combined leadership experience in various models of independent schools addressing these very issues. Whether you answer to a pastor, a superintendent, an advisory board, a governing board, an executive director, or any combination thereof, this presentation will provide attendees with some tried and true best practices to establish and maintain effective working relationships with them all. Resilient leadership starts with removing the “best intended” obstacles to that leadership!

This session is proudly supported by Advancement Courses.
