REVIEW OF ASPIRING LEADERS SEMINAR
AMORA HOTEL WELLINGTON FRIDAY 8 AUGUST
Challenging debate from an education academic, sage advice from an education recruiter and tell-it-like-it is presentations from established Heads/Principals defined the ISNZ Aspiring Leaders Seminar in Wellington recently.
The day was peppered with high-quality, shared discussion on issues ranging from:
- student-centred leadership
- pedagogical and transformational leadership
- managing your profile as a prospective leadership candidate
- dealing with ‘search calls’ from recruitment companies
- the importance of self-awareness in the interview process
- the importance of gaining external governance experience
- dealing with feedback and appraisals as a Head/Principal
- leadership style
- student/parent/school conflict involving moral dilemmas
