Overview: Unlock Your Leadership Potential

The workshop delves into the art of leadership and the science of management, addressing the crucial question: Can being a great teacher automatically translate into being a great leader? Through engaging sessions and practical insights, participants will explore their unique strengths, leadership DNA, and develop a deeper understanding of themselves as educators and leaders.


What knowledge, skills, and dispositions are central to leading departments and grade level teams in international schools, and how are these supported by your strengths as a teacher in the classroom?

What is the difference between leadership and management, and why are both essential to the international school team leader?

Why is it essential for leaders to know and understand not only what they lead but also why they lead and how they lead?

This workshop is designed for new or aspiring leaders of grade level or department teams in international schools.
