Learn from Women Leaders: A Look Into Top Female Innovators 

There is no substitute for effective leadership and taking the time to read and learn from diverse people from all industries only helps to expand a school principals’ ability to view complex issues through a broad yet critical lens.

We’ve discovered that innovation in schools can be limited by the culture of the organization. Fortunately, it is well within the scope of any leader’s reach to become more innovative by implementing a few key practices. Below is our School Innovation Leadership Model.

Topics We Cover Regarding Innovative Educator Leadership:

  • We discuss how to be innovative even during times of uncertainty and mass change. The Dual Pandemics of Covid19 and Racism have created opportunities to seize change and to be innovative in schools and the classroom. 
  • We highlight that innovation can be incremental and that small adjustments can eventually make for major changes. We pointed back to Society Nine from our blog this month.
  • We talk about how values can create an environment that welcomes and embraces new ideas.

We hope you like this month’s 302 Thoughts as we continue to discuss leadership and the impact that you can have on your community.
