Back to Leading Change Together: Developing Educator Capacity Within Schools and Systems
“If we can get adult development right, we can change the world!” Adult development . . . in schools? Yes. In fact, understanding and sharing ideas—and implementing practices—that help adults explore experiences and assumptions is a powerful driver of school change. Eleanor Drago-Severson and Jessica Blum-DeStefano share expertise that has evolved from their many decades of research and work with educators and show you how to
- Deepen your understanding of adult development and its role in systemic and schoolwide change and educational improvement,
- Connect theory to practice with developmentally oriented structures and strategies that enhance collaboration, communication, and feedback,
- Support individual and organizational growth with a differentiated approach to leadership and capacity building, and
- Build trust, capacity, collegiality, and sustainability with developmental practices that meet adult needs.
Whether you work in a school, district, university, educational institution, or other learning organization, you’ll learn how to infuse leadership, collaboration, communication, and capacity building with a deep understanding of individuals’ experiences and capacities—and how they influence our day-to-day work. Leading Change Together explains how you and other adult learners can effect tremendous change in schools and systems.
