Inspiring educators to think differently about how they support learning can be accomplished through empowerment strategies. When people are empowered to act, leadership can emerge in anyone, at any time, and extraordinary accomplishments are possible.

Having a common vision, being collaborative, and trusting others are a few of the factors necessary when embedding & distributing leadership.

On December 5, Raymond McNulty will discuss the role of leadership and describe the characteristics of extraordinary leaders at Lindenwood University. Ray believes  strongly that education systems cannot wait for the children and challenges to arrive at school; rather, schools need to reach out and help forge solutions.

By defining leadership as the disposition to act, a school leader can share traditional power with others. Empowerment increases leadership density and sets the stage for more work in Transformational Leadership. Central to the development of empowerment are communications, information, and trust. Empowerment is a critical requirement for continuous improvement, so that with every change in leadership, the system does not reset to the past. This session will describe all aspects of the Transformational Leadership framework: authoritative, creative, collaborative, and adaptive.
