Leadership's Ten Commandments DVD
In this breakout session (from the 10 July 2009, Professional Learning Communities at Work™ Institute in Denver, Colorado), Kenneth C Williams presents ten powerful rules for leading and sustaining change in a professional learning community (PLC). Williams employs research, encourages audience participation, and reflects on his own experience to provide specific techniques to move educators towards PLC implementation. He digs deep into the commandments, discussing their principles and explaining why sometimes even believers stray from them. What results is a set of guidelines for leading with integrity and creating a cohesive, collaborative staff dedicated to student learning. He addresses the following topics:
- How to engage all of a school community’s stakeholders in finding clarity on goals and norms
- Why shared vision among staff and faculty is so important for PLC implementation and school improvement
- How to deal with conflict in productive ways that leave all participants feeling respected and able to move forward
- What to do in seemingly impossible situations like when an individual’s behaviour threatens staff harmony, the PLC project or the school’s core goals
Williams’s humour and insight make him an engaging guide on the path to truly effective PLC leadership.
This package includes a 61-minute DVD with the presenter’s session, a CD with the presenter’s slide presentation, an excerpt from the book The Collaborative Administrator, and more.
