Leadership is a social construct, positioned in time and place and influenced by personality. This workshop aims to expose, test, and critique the assumptions upon which your own
style, definition and understanding of leadership are based. Leadership theory and current research will form the basis for discussion with case studies and your own experiences being used to explore leadership, cross-cultural investigations and the impact of culture on leadership styles and practices. There will be an emphasis on the complex, contextual and holistic nature of leadership, and you will build deeper understandings of how to adapt your leadership style in different contexts. The workshop will include an introduction to the capabilities and intelligences, core themes and leadership processes that are considered to be most supportive of effective leadership in a range of IB contexts. In line with IB philosophy, you will be encouraged to develop an investigative mindset, become more inquiry-based and reflective practitioners while modelling lifelong learning.
Action research will be introduced, helping you identify major issues that leaders may face, while planning possible responses that reflect an awareness of local context. You will develop and articulate a deeper understanding of your own philosophy, and draft a personal philosophy statement
