Special Session for Heads of School

Reconstruction in Progress:
Sustaining Community and Managing Emotions Through Teamwork


Featuring Susan R. Perry PhD., MSW, LCSW (NC)

Via Zoom

It’s no secret that heads of school are challenged by the prospect of trying to manage, by themselves, the overwhelming increase in the emotional needs of faculty created by the pandemic. Research suggests that cultivating teamwork can help address this challenge. Interdependent teamwork – a leadership culture or mindset based on the collaboration of otherwise independent groups in schools – happens when resources, expertise, and learning are shared across departments, divisions, and programs. Teams demonstrating curiosity, using appreciative inquiry skills, cultivating and sharing beliefs and practices with an emphasis on inclusive learning, are hallmarks of interdependent leadership in action.

An interactive, facilitative dialogue about the head of school leadership triad of leading and caring for self, with teams, and sustaining community will be the focus of our time together, with the goal of equipping school leaders to manage the emotional needs of adults as we move forward to the next phase of the pandemic. 

 While this session focuses on heads of school, key members of the leadership team (assistant heads, division leaders) are welcome.

This event is for AISGW members only. Participation is free.
