Foundations for Systems Leadership: Complexity, Compassion and Collective well-being

November 18-20 2019

Facilitated by Peter Senge & Mette Miriam Boell

Ventura, California USA


The overall aim of Foundations for Systems Leadership is to advance systems leadership in preK-12 education – leaders who foster collaboration for systemic change across organizational and hierarchical structures. Such leadership is a key dimension to support the profound changes needed for schools and education systems to become truly relevant for today’s students and for society at large. Transforming systems is, ultimately, about transforming relationships among the people and institutions that shape how those systems function. This has never been more important in education – such as in California’s Local Control Funding Formula and the California System of Support, which requires state agencies, county offices of education and local school districts to reach out and build multi-stakeholder partnerships in ways never required in the past. This hands-on program, tailored for both school day and expanded learning leaders, offers a practice-based approach to building a foundation in your own understanding and capacity with learning tools that have been in development for several decades.
