“Embracing the Changing Dimension of Leadership in Education for Sustainability and Progressive Growth:To Be or Not to Be?”

The great quote, “Leaders are not born but they are made”, provides us with the notion that leadership qualities are acquired through numerous platforms and avenues. Therefore, it is the most dangerous leadership myth that leaders are born-that there is a genetic factor to leadership. Based on this pertinent notion, it is truly crucial that all educationists are given
equal opportunities to be profound leaders in education to ensure that every institution and organisation under their purview will be administered ad managed with total professionalism, integrity and ethics. This presentations aims to share the roles and responsibilities in the
context of leadership in education that will elevate every institution and organisation to the level best in sustainability and progressive growth in both the blue and red ocean scenario. Issues and challenges will also be shared in the hope of seeking the right contextualised solutions in moving forward. With a clear comprehension of the landscape shift in education
leadership, sustainability and progressive growth will be the significant focus and outcome among leaders in education. “The leader is one who, out of clutter, brings simplicity…Out of discord, harmony… And out of difficulty, opportunity.”-Albert Einstein.

Nurturing A School As A Learning Organization

This workshop will explore how we as leaders of schools are responsible for creating and nurturing our schools as a learning organization. Professional learning, as opposed to professional development, is where faculty, staff, and students are empowered to learn and collaborate with their peers and actively and constantly contribute to their schools to become a holistic learning organization through a variety of methods and experiences. Mistakes are to be encouraged as long as we learn from them. As leaders of schools, we will touch on how we use our own knowledge and expertise to innovate and instigate change and move away from growing discretely in silos, to growing together as an organization. We will discuss and define what exactly is a learning organization and participants will be encouraged to contextualize our understandings on this day to their own unique settings. Furthermore, we will unpack the beliefs that exist and the challenges that we face as transformational leaders in moving our schools toward becoming a cohesive learning organization. Finally, in order for us to be able to achieve this, we shall delve into what leadership attributes and dispositions are required to be the leader of an effective learning organization.

In the realm of effective leadership, a comprehensive understanding of leading at all levels is paramount. Acknowledging this, we emphasise the importance of providing teachers with professional pathways for personal growth, simultaneously enriching the educational journey for their students. By fostering leadership skills from a young age, students are better equipped to surmount obstacles, seize a broader spectrum of opportunities, and eventually become the trailblazing leaders of the future.

In our exploration, we delve into the dynamic landscape of education, which is constantly evolving. Within this ever-changing context, we address both the challenges and opportunities that emerge, while presenting practical strategies to support school leaders, teachers, and students in confidently facing the future.

At the core of our educational vision lies a commitment to global citizenship. This entails an inclusive and collaborative approach to education and assessment. Our insights delve into the profound impact of cross-cultural collaborations, cultivating holistic educational experiences that empower both students and educators alike.

Join us as we navigate the transformative potential of effective leadership, nurturing a progressive educational environment where growth, inclusion, and collaboration flourish. Together, we can shape a brighter future for all.
