Flipped Leadership Doesn’t Have to Mean Reinventing the Wheel


Screen Shot 2014-07-11 at 2.36.10 PMThe old way of leading a school sometimes involved sending out newsletters once a month to parents, and checking off a list of “to do’s” at monthly faculty meetings. For some leaders though, that wasn’t enough. They wanted to go deeper in their involvement in the school community, and take risks with how they communicate with all stakeholders. It involves flipped leadership.  Due to major changes in education, it is more important than ever that school leaders engage all stakeholders.  In this webinar for the Leadership 3.0 community, Peter DeWitt, Ed.D. shared how engaging parents and teachers with flipped communication can help build a more engaging school climate. Peter explored topics like sending five-minute videos before faculty meetings, open houses, and PTA meetings to help make the conversations at those meetings much more authentic – which is the core purpose of flipped leadership.  This type of leadership is not a passing fad, because it is an engaging way to continue the ongoing conversation about education.  View the webinar to learn how to become a flipped leader!
