Discover how intentional self-development can help you become a transformative leader.
Leaders often underestimate the power they have to make change. By paying attention to our personal growth, we can deepen our impact as leaders.
In Developing Myself, you’ll learn the importance of intentional self-development and use a variety of tools to support personal growth. You’ll learn to use practices such as deep listening, the ladder of inference, and testing big assumptions to improve professional relationships, diagnose challenges, and achieve personal leadership goals. You’ll also acquire tools to help you diagnose and respond to the complex challenges of systems-level education leadership.
Developing Myself takes place over 12 weeks. It moves through a cycle of learning, application, performance, and demonstration. You’ll engage in a range of activities and activities both online and in your personal and professional contexts.
The experience is designed to be both rigorous and flexible. The activities are asynchronous, meaning you can choose when within a given week you do them. Each week will require five to seven hours of work, with more guided, paced work during the “learning” weeks (weeks 2, 3, 4, and 8) and more job-associated practice and application during weeks 5-7 and 9-12.
