On April 26, 2018, Future Ready Schools® (FRS) held a webinar that is part of its Leadership Hub, a one-stop-shop of professional learning opportunities for school leaders.
Brad Gustafson, EdD, is a National Distinguished Principal and best-selling author. He serves as an advisor with FRS and was recognized as an NSBA “20 to Watch” for his innovative leadership. Brad cohosts the popular education podcast UnearthED.
In this webinar, Brad and Tom delved into innovative leadership practices to support student learning. They shared strategies for applying positive deviance in all roles that serve kids. Participants will collect examples of innovative leadership and hear about leadership behaviors that positively disrupt traditional thinking.
Panelists raised these questions and more:
- What is the number one barrier to innovation in your current role? Why?
- What would schools look like if innovation was held in the same regard as high-stakes test data?
- How can innovation be applied to a school’s budget, beliefs, schedule, professional development, and traditions to more effectively serve learners?
Brad and Tom also addressed questions submitted from online viewers.
