The 4 Essential Roles of Leadership™

BCPVPA Director of Professional Learning and Development, Peter Johnston, leads this two-day workshop

Friday November 18 and Saturday November 19, 2022 - Vancouver

The world is changing at an unprecedented pace. Every day, school leaders are making countless decisions and facing problems they’ve never encountered before. What worked yesterday can change overnight. The speed is relentless, the stakes are high, but the rewards are great for those who can lead school staff to consistently achieve extraordinary results. So how can educational leaders stay ahead of the curve and thrive alongside their teams when so much is changing so quickly?

Program Information

Leading a Culture of Learning

Leading a Culture of Learning is a five-session program supporting leaders in building collaborative cultures that focus on learning. 

  • In the first session, participants define themselves as leaders, grounding their vision in firmly held values and beliefs.
  • In the second session, participants explore theories of change, and develop their ability to craft questions for inquiry.
  • In the third session, participants understand the power of the story as they begin to define the learning journey for their school.
  • In the fourth session, participants are introduced to structures to support job-embedded learning.
  • In the fifth session, participants will explore ways of amplifying the capabilities of the people they lead.

Participants are supported as they learn how to have coaching conversations to plan, to reflect, and to problem solve.
