Dr. Larry Johnson TALKS about Uncommon Leadership in Uncertain Times
Education worldwide is in the midst of tremendous change. Old norms are being upended; old models of learning are being questioned. The very purposes of schools and even universities are being challenged not only by forces within education, but by competitive realities that are very foreign to most school leaders. The outcomes of primary and secondary education are being called into question, and many will find it hard to justify old ways of doing business when that microscope comes to bear on their institutions. In this changing landscape, we need institutions willing to break the traditional mold. We need uncommon leaders, uncommon faculties, and uncommon systems and processes for making decisions. Creativity and vision is more important than ever. We need people at every level that are willing to try new ideas, to take risks, and even to fail on the road to getting it right. Join Horizon Project founder Larry Johnson as he traces the evolution of western education, and details significant challenges and shifts in that framework that educational institutions must strive to understand and embrace. Collectively, these challenges will require a tectonic level shift in the common wisdom, but that won’t be enough. Schools that aspire to be world class will need uncommon wisdom, as the very nature of what we mean by “world class” is inexorably shifting as well.
