As a board president or vice president, it is your responsibility to cultivate the power of shared leadership. The 2016 Board Officers Academy will provide insights and strategies you can use at your board table.

We strongly encourage superintendents and board officers to attend this event together to maximize the benefits. But if you are not able to attend together, there is still much knowledge to be gained.

Attend this workshop and you will:

  • Hear from the board president and superintendent who lead a high performing school board. These leaders have spent seven years addressing issues such as shared visions, flexibility, living with ambiguity, conflict resolution and more.
  • Understand the impact of shared leadership and how the “4 Cs” support a successful partnership.
  • Learn how personality types influence your board’s work. You’ll take the Myers-Briggs® personality inventory to get to know yourself a little better and then you’ll participate in interactive activities that illustrate how having a better understanding of personality types impacts your board’s efforts.

WHO SHOULD ATTEND?

  • Board Presidents and Vice Presidents
  • Superintendents

9:00 - 10:15 a.m. Shared Leadership: The Board President – Superintendent Partnership

Healthy board president-superintendent relationships boost productivity. Powerful board president-superintendent partnerships are cultivated through creating a shared vision, understanding leadership style and conflict resolution, and maintaining well-managed boundaries. Learn how a high-performing school board and its superintendent have developed the optimal balance of leadership and management through ongoing assessment of board processes and relationships, mutual feedback, keeping a global perspective and more.

10:30 a.m. - Noon Building Competence in your Leadership Skills: Using the Myers-Briggs® Type Inventory Part I

What causes board members or superintendents to react the way that they do? What if you could anticipate reactions before they occur and manage them with ease? During this session you will use the Myers-Briggs® personality inventory to better understand your own behaviors and leadership style, and appreciate others’ styles on your leadership team. Discuss with your board president, vice president and superintendent the strategies that will help you manage your board with confidence.

Leading Through Thick 'n' Thin: the Nuts & Bolts of Sharing Leadership

The impact of shared leadership is more profound than the results one person can achieve alone. It’s not easy to share the leadership role, but board presidents, vice presidents and superintendents that can harness the power of shared leadership have the opportunity to guide their districts to unprecedented success. Through this interactive discussion identify the 4 Cs: confidence and expectations of your superintendent, board president or vice president; clarity of roles and responsibilities; consensus on what constitutes success; and crafting the culture of the board, that all support a successful partnership.
