What a great article! When you see the majority of articles are trying to push technology to the maximum, it's nice to be reminded of what aspects of education should remain simple and traditional.

Every Leader Must Be A Change Agent Or Face Extinction

Every Leader Must Be A Change Agent Or Face Extinction | Catholic School Leadership | Scoop.it
In a workplace infused with top down, hierarchical, departmental silos, change management is the new requirement for leadership success. With a market comprised of fickle consumers and workplaces brimming with employee identity crises, leadership success requires more patience, poise, and time-to-think – and the ability to seamlessly connect the dots of opportunity. The marketplace requirements to compete are evolving so quickly that leadership is struggling to stay ahead of the course; unsuccessful efforts to be proactive and sustain organizational readiness will come at an extremely high cost. As such, the demand for leadership that is willing and capable of tackling change management head-on – already in short supply – is at a premium. Leadership in the 21st century not only requires the ability to continuously manage crisis and change – but also the circular vision to see around, beneath and beyond the obvious in order to anticipate the unexpected before circumstances force your hand. As you embark upon your change management journey, here are ten things that will challenge your capabilities as a change agent and potentially become defining moments along your leadership success path.

Andre Potvin's insight:

Glenn Llopis, a corporate executive and entrepreneur, presents an interesting term that certainly applies to the school principalship - 'change management'. He argues that this is an embedded leadership requirement. He talks about having the time to think for leadership success yet research says that principals spend most of their time (90%) 'managing' their schools trying to cope with the excessive work load. How do principals facilitate the time to really think about their own leadership around school visioning and long-term planning to enhance student achievement and well-being?
