How are you having the difficult conversations around what comes next for your students and your school communities?
Join Homa Tavangar and Will Richardson for this fast-paced, interactive session to help you make the best decisions you can for your students given the uncertain moment we all find ourselves in.
Making sense of the present
The disruption of school
Amidst an unprecedented global pandemic, almost every school in the world has one thing in common: Everything has been severely disrupted.
Teachers have risen as heroes, creating pivots in a few days or weeks that previously were only dreamed of, and school leaders have been stretched to imagine novel ways to create community, engage students of varying ages, abilities and access to technology, partner with parents, and communicate effectively to maintain confidence and unity, while uncertainties continue to loom around every corner.
Seeing the future
Leaders with foresight will stand out
It is in this environment of uncertainty that leaders with foresight will stand out. While the extent of the disturbances we are living in was unimaginable only months ago, some leaders from diverse sectors had been anticipating these, and baking that uncertainty into a range of contingency plans. Today, everyone is thinking about the disruptions to come, but unsure of how to get ahead of these, and not simply stay in a reactive mode.
A way forward
Learn to create a path to the future
Join Homa Tavangar and Will Richardson for this unique 90-minute introduction to Scenario Planning for Educational Leaders. We'll superimpose futures thinking on some of the best practices from organizational development, systems and school change, neuroscience, wisdom from diverse cultures and leaders, then consider how these might help educational leaders act with more strategic foresight to lead their communities.
