Transformational Leadership Retreat for Educators

July 9, 2017 @ 9:00 am - July 14, 2017 @ 5:00 pm

A program presented by PassageWorks Institute at 1440 Multiversity in Santa Cruz, California.

What is Transformational Leadership?

Transformational leadership starts from the inside out, and shows up throughout the day in all the leader’s interactions with staff, students, families, community members and district personnel. These interactions are infused with personal values, social and emotional intelligence, cultural responsiveness, and an understanding of interconnectedness. This approach to leadership:

  • Emphasizes the importance of every relations
  • Builds trust with stakeholders through sincerity, competence, and reliability
  • Addresses conflict with clarity and compassion
  • Balances empathy and decisiveness
  • Creates emotionally rich and academically rigorous classrooms
  • Develops the whole teacher and the whole student across a variety of cultural backgrounds
  • Cultivates alliances across differences and
  • Honors every person

The resulting trust becomes the foundation for deep inquiry into the roots and branches of school dilemmas and challenges. Personal reflection, structured dialogue, and a supportive community allows for the emergence of creative, sustainable and long-term solutions within complex systems. Organizational and individual change go hand in hand. To engage in such change, leaders must cultivate:

Authentic Presence |Communication & Facilitation Skills | Cultural Responsiveness | Understanding of Whole Systems Change

You will learn to lead from the inside out through key practices and structures that develop, enhance, and sustain these competencies while creating a community of leaders who provide support to each other—allowing for the emergence of creative, sustainable, and long-term solutions within complex systems.
