Leading a learning community

“The teacher’s role in this journey is to ‘model advance learning’. They are there as a mentor, a guide, a coach, and most importantly, a co-learner.”  –  Glenn Chickering, Head of Faculty at Green School, Bali

The purpose of our time together will be to explore how you can lead and build a learning community in your own unique way.

To do this we will use the Co-Active leadership model as a framework to explore new ways of leading, as a leadership development tool, to unlock different approaches when you are stuck and to develop your listening skills so you can act on what you sense is needed.
