"If we can get adult development right, we can change the world!"
Adult development . . . in schools? Yes. In fact, understanding and sharing ideas-and implementing practices-that help adults explore experiences and assumptions is a powerful driver of school change. Eleanor Drago-Severson and Jessica Blum-DeStefano share expertise that has evolved from their many decades of research and work with educators and show you how to:
Deepen your understanding of adult development and its role in systemic and schoolwide change and educational improvement.
Connect theory to practice with developmentally oriented structures and strategies that enhance collaboration, communication, and feedback.
Support individual and organizational growth with a differentiated approach to leadership and capacity building.
Build trust, capacity, collegiality, and sustainability with developmental practices that meet adult needs.
Whether you work in a school, district, university, educational institution, or other learning organization, you'll learn how to infuse leadership, collaboration, communication, and capacity building with a deep understanding of individuals' experiences and capacities-and how they influence our day-to-day work. Leading Change Together explains how you and other adult learners can effect tremendous change in schools and systems.
