eduCCate Global is very pleased to invite you to “Bedtime stories for headteachers” with Henry Mintzberg. This is the first peer-learning workshops designed especially for forward thinking headteachers in our network. eduCCate Global recognizes that you are leading your schools through unprecedentedly complex times and we want to help you find, learn and create constructive practices in your schools and the communities where you live.
In this workshop you will join practicing headteachers from around the globe and participate in guided small group discussions around the theme of "Influencing others: Leading through trust". First you will examine two common managerial pitfalls: relying too heavily on formal authority and relying on close personal relationships as methods of influencing others. You will then explore the only enduring basis of influence: trust. How do you establish trust with others? By building your own competence and character. What do you need to do differently? This session will help you answer this question.
Henry Mintzberg, a world leading expert on management and strategy, will join us at the end of the breakouts to talk about your learning experience and share his big idea for Rebalancing Society to discuss where and how headteachers can play a role.
Henry is the Cleghorn Professor of Management Studies at the Desautels Faculty of Management of McGill University in Montreal, Quebec, Canada where he has been teaching since 1968. He is the author or co-author of fifteen books, his management articles number over one hundred fifty, and he is recognized in the Web of Science list of “the world’s most cited and influential researchers” with approximately 4,000 citations.
This is an incredible opportunity to meet Henry and headteachers from around the world, learn together, share ideas, and generate energy for action. While the challenges in our schools and school systems are many, the possibilities are endless, so let’s get started.
