DEPUTY PRINCIPALS LEADERSHIP 
COLLOQUIUm

Program duration

12 months

LEADERSHIP AND AUTHENTICITY

Participants explore what it takes to be an effective school leader using a strengths-based approach. This module introduces participants to a values-based leadership framework as they take a deep dive into the relationship between authenticity and effective leadership.

Communication presence and influence

This module commences with an exploration of one’s own preferred style of communication and the impact of one’s style on others. The module moves on to focus on effective communication and influencing at different levels interpersonal, team, and organisational.

PROGRAM THEMES

TEAM DYNAMICS

During this module participants explore the practical implications of managing diverse and challenging groups. Participants examine the qualities shared by high-performing teams and identify effective strategies to foster cultures that support optimal teamwork.

DRIVING PERFORMANCE

This module supports participants to provide feedback and motivate their team to exceed performance expectations. Participants identify key principles of performance management in order to ensure consistency with organisational objectives. This module also explores techniques involved in coaching others and building individual capability.

LEADERSHIP INNOVATION AND CHANGE

This module focuses on the leadership skills involved in driving innovation and change. Participants critically discuss the application of relevant theory and explore the way in which innovation and change are inextricably intertwined. Participants then examine leadership challenges during times of crisis, gaining an understanding of the way in which leaders can build an agile and resilient organisation.

THINKING STRATEGICALLY

During this module participants work on a scenario-based case study using a variety of strategic problem-solving tools. Participants will explore ways to take an active role in managing the continuous improvement process in order to achieve the organisation’s objectives.

Participants undertake a capability assessment to evaluate their ability and confidence in key areas. Results from this simple assessment support each participant to develop a personal action plan to help them achieve their developmental objectives.

During the program participants enter into a peer coaching/ mentoring partnership with a co-participant. The peer coaching/ mentoring process is an important element within the program enabling participants to hone their skills as role models and mentors within their school.

Throughout the program participants engage in nine live online sessions, focused on rich discussion and debate, relevant to each topic area. Accessible from any mobile or desktop device, and conducted outside of regular classroom hours, these sessions create a regular connection point enabling collaborative exploration of key ideas and concepts.

Throughout the program, self-directed learning content is accessible via our state of the art online learning management system (LMS) allowing participants to engage with it at any time from any device. Content includes high quality video tutorials, ‘best practice’ leadership literature, experiential activities and reflective tasks. Throughout the program, participants are also free to connect with each other 24/7 via the LMS and discuss ‘top of mind’ issues.

PURPOSE, PRIORITIES AND PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT

This module focuses on developing skills to hone a competitive edge. Participants will learn to develop effective work goals and behaviours to competently manage work priorities. They will also explore the critical elements of establishing personal work objectives, prioritising workload for optimum achievement and building on professional competence.

"The course was particularly helpful. The blend of theoretical components, webinars and peer coaching allowed participants to truly integrate evidence-based leadership practices into practical scenarios with genuine opportunities for professional reflections and significant growth. The sequencing of learning in the program was carefully structured, allowing learners to delve deeper into the resources as we progressed through the course. The amount of time allowed for the completion of each module and the way in which both the webinars and the peer coaching was moulded into the modules allowed for optimal professional growth and for the resources to be comprehensively applied to practical settings. Since beginning the course, I have managed a significant promotion which I am quite sure would have not been possible without the applied learning and experience of the program."
