About the Session

AUDIENCE: LEAD TEACHERS, SCHOOL LEADERS, SCHOOL BASED COACHES, DEPARTMENT HEADS, ASSOCIATE PRINCIPALS AND TEACHERS INTERESTED IN DEVELOPING LEADERSHIP SKILLS ARE ENCOURAGED TO ATTEND.

Leadership to Power Potential and Possibility continues the journey of exploration with school leaders to reimagine, rethink and reconsider their learning cultures to make the extraordinary happen! Facilitated by Peter Gamwell, retired Superintendent of the Ottawa-Carleton District School Board, and co-author of The Wonder Wall, participants will come to create a new metaphor for leadership upon which powerful learning will occur. 

As Peter guides participants on their leadership journey through the imperative of leading with creativity in an age of complexity, participants will come to understand:

  • what complexities are their realities,
  • how to foster creative change,
  • how to create the environment that allows and encourages innovative thinking,
  • who they are as leaders of change through an innovative mindset, and
  • the ‘seeds of brilliance’ that others have to offer in creating and sustaining a new learning culture.

During this dynamic learning series participants will delve deeply into the creation of a culture of engagement and belonging though effective leadership at all levels as a means to drive change and foster the kind of learning environment where creativity thrives. 

Most importantly, Leadership to Power Potential and Possibility will help participants to make the extraordinary happen by harnessing their unique creative capacities to develop action plans that shift thinking, and ultimately shift their learning cultures. 

This learning opportunity is being offered as a cost recovery program.
