This podcast is the first in a series of podcasts based on our own experiences at the 1st annual ASCD Leadership Conference in October 2013. It is our hope that in sharing this information with leaders, through our own reflections, we are able to assist in developing individual leaders’ transformative skills. Without transformative leaders it will be impossible to create the transformative schools needed to ensure college and career ready students. Join us for this first podcast, based on Eric Jensen’s keynote entitled Leading with the Brain in Mind: Five Approaches to 21st Century Leadership.
It is imperative that leadership help teachers to “connect the dots” in seeing how transformation has to occur systemically but begins in the classroom. It is the clear responsibility of leadership to make certain that our schools employ only the most excellent teachers. Teachers that will thoughtfully and skillfully facilitate appropriate learning for each student.
