This leadership workshop offers a unique opportunity for personal and professional development through deep learning, shared reflection and peer dialogue.

The workshop is an immersive experience that challenges participants to explore how an integrated focus on self-development, team learning, generative dialogue and systems thinking can support school and system innovation, effectiveness and improvement. Awareness-based System Leadership is an approach that that draws upon Senge’s theories about organisational learning and Scharmer’s work on awareness-based change to address important questions about personal and collective capacity building, sustainable innovation, and effective change management.

The workshop provides a nurturing forum for educational leaders to revitalise a personal vision for their own development, while deeply examining the relational and transformational elements of their leadership role.

During the workshop, participants will:
  • Engage with conversations that promote deep learning and collaboration
  • Explore their beliefs and assumptions about effective leadership and change management, as well as school and system development
  • Extend their understanding of models and frameworks for leading change at a personal, collective and organisational level
  • Develop a vision for the development of your organisation and yourself
  • Identify systems and structures that will help support and drive the change process
  • Experiment with a variety of practical tools to support reflection and the application of core aspects of ASL to your context and practice
