Building & Leading Teams
14, 21, 28 September & 05 October 2022
Facilitated by: Nancy Squicciarini
Timings: 15:00-17:00 (London time) on each day
We know that building and leading an effective team is an important step in enabling individual and collective success. This course explores how middle leaders can create cohesive and collaborative teams that are focused on student learning.
The course draws on the extensive body of literature and research in order identify what is most useful, practical and productive in leading teams. Teachers and administrators are by definition expected to be leaders. The key is to use that authority thoughtfully, sensitively, and productively. Should we find ourselves in the role of a leader without perceived authority – a more informal position, it is a different dynamic.
Participants leave the course with a clear understanding of how to build a high functioning team in order to transform learning.
· What are some characteristics of a highly functioning team?
· How can I facilitate the creation of a team focused on student learning?
· How can protocols, structures and norms facilitate thinking and a focus on student learning?
· What types of conversations are critical, and when are they likely to occur?
· What processes and behaviours can be prepared in advance to enable difficult situations and conversations to be well managed?
