Leadership: It's People, Politics, Policy … and deeply Personal
School District leadership today is an all-encompassing calling. Superintendents don't turn off the leadership role outside of the students’ school day hours. Indeed, the Superintendent "is always in and always on"! It requires a 24/7 investment of mental, emotional and generally physical presence.
As a result, one can never separate their "person" from the daily role they play with hundreds of people, or the political, policy driven and dynamic environment that is their life. Who you are, what you do and how you do it are inextricably tied.
This conference is designed to give you essential fuel for key parts of your life's role. WASDA will address the current political environment you face, cover the dynamics of the reality of life for today's students and the educators who serve them, and study current trends in policy that will effect daily work. Importantly, WASDA will also provide the opportunity for you to reflect on you the person - who you are and how that defines the leader you are. Leadership is critically important. It's also deeply personal. Join your colleagues for three days of personal learning and reflection.
