Despite the constant need for change in educational institutions, change leadership has remained largely the same. Theories of change are deeply rooted in practices, which are neither effective nor nimble. Indeed, many change management processes are based on assumptions inherent in long-term strategic planning that have not been working for many years. This interactive workshop includes direct application to the individual needs of each participant, including a Change Readiness Assessment and then applies the four essentials of the New Model for Change Leadership. Participants will learn how to replace outmoded notions of “buy-in” with a respectful appeal to empiricism, testing hypotheses in real time and making changes that are adaptive and sustainable.
