Leading Change Together

Adult development . . . in schools? Yes. In fact, understanding and sharing ideas–and implementing practices–that help adults explore experiences and assumptions is a powerful driver of school change. Eleanor Drago-Severson and Jessica Blum-DeStefano share expertise that has evolved from their many decades of research and work with educators and show you how to

  • Deepen your understanding of adult development and its role in systemic and schoolwide change and educational improvement,
  • Connect theory to practice with developmentally oriented structures and strategies that enhance collaboration, communication, and feedback,
  • Support individual and, organizational growth with a differentiated approach to leadership and capacity building, and
  • Build trust, capacity, collegiality, and sustainability with developmental practices that meet adult needs.

Whether you work in a school, district, university, educational institution, or other learning organization, you’ll learn how to infuse leadership, collaboration, communication, and capacity building with a deep understanding of individuals’ experiences and capacities–and how they influence our day-to-day work. Leading Change Together explains how you and other adult learners can effect tremendous change in schools and systems.
