Agile Leadership in Fragile Times – Leadership for Coordinators 24th November 2020
How do we lead people to work together at their best?
Schools have not always been known for their ability to cope with rapid change but in the COVID era schools have been called on to keep going no matter what. This means that school leaders and coordinators need to respond to change rather than follow a plan while empowering individuals and interactions rather than unworkable processes and tools.
This difference in focus means that the leadership styles that worked well for traditional management approaches do not work well in a virus driven crisis.
