Great Management in Times of Crisis: Building Your Distributed Leadership Capacity
The COVID-19 pandemic has created an extremely challenging environment for leaders, as they must learn to lead during an extended crisis, while learning to lead virtually. Each of these on their own present a significant challenge, but coupled together, they create an extraordinary leadership environment.
Distributed leadership models become essential for effectively managing through these dual challenges. School leaders need to quickly determine which leaders are able to contribute virtually, and then empower these leaders to lead others. Schools need to look at everything from job descriptions, job norms, accountability, and standards. EXPLO Elevate can support and coach school leadership teams in becoming more effective in practicing effective distributed leadership. Our veteran school leaders can help schools determine what is really critical using our 2/5/10 methodology, share distributed leadership best practices, diagnose challenge areas, and provide coaching.
