Leadership 2023: Culture & Change

27-29 April 2023
International School of Düsseldorf

The 2023 Conference theme Culture and Change welcomes school leaders and other educators to conversations and collaborations that reflect what we do best: learn from experience. Organizational culture, Edgar Schein, wrote ‘the only thing of real importance that leaders need to do is to create and manage culture. If you do not manage culture, it manages you.  The unique talent of leaders is their ability to understand and work with culture. In a school context, with the enormous array of responsibilities within the leader’s role, a key responsibility is to manage the culture of the school. Furthermore, effective management of the culture can be one of the most powerful tools for school improvement.

How can we understand the culture of our schools and put measures in place to create a powerful, and self-sustaining, model for improvement to enable all school communities to flourish?
