Join award-winning student leadership specialist Mariam MacGregor to evaluate the current state of leadership development efforts in your school as you strive to prepare students for lifelong leadership regardless of career path. Attendees will be prompted through this edWebinar to identify and overcome roadblocks to student leadership development, find opportunities to implement culture change, create a leadership communication plan, and attract allies and partners.
No approach is one-size-fits-all, so this edWebinar’s goal is to help practitioners clearly communicate an attainable vision of K–12 leadership development and post-secondary workplace preparation specific to their setting. In this edWebinar, attendees will:
- Initiate a broad inventory of existing leadership efforts
- Learn how to communicate and engage with colleagues to positively manage change
- Reflect on new and interesting ways to increase student leadership development
- Explore and rekindle your own leadership approaches
This presentation is for K-12 teachers, school and district leaders, counselors, school resource officers, PTO leaders, and school board members who are committed to preparing the next generation of student leaders throughout their school system. There will be time to get your questions answered at the end of Mariam’s presentation.
