Capacity Building – Leadable – Trusty Tools

Introducing the first of our “Leadables”- “Trusty Tools”

A critical element of change leadership is “going slow to go fast”, but sometimes leaders need a short, sharp focus to generate professional learning conversations or for individual reflection.

Designed as “quick shots”, “Leadables” are intended to be used to provoke dialogue and focussed conversations around a variety of Leading, Teaching and Learning elements. Themes will be drawn from examples we are seeing in schools and organizations, questions we are encountering and new ideas and research around deep learning.
