System Leadership: Executive Educators Programme
Being an Executive Principal or a MAT Leader can be a very different role in different contexts but to be a system leader, the skill that is really needed is the ability to be an “adaptive thinker” with a clear moral purpose for creating “equity and excellence” across a system.
Spend a day networking and collaborating with a range of Executive Leaders to: understand the competencies of this emerging role in a rapidly changing leadership landscape; understand how to create a system leadership role that adds real value.
