Praxis – Leadership in Action
After retiring as Superintendent of Schools in Surrey, BC, one of Canada’s largest school districts, I wanted to continue to celebrate and support leadership and building the capacity of systems in a variety of contexts. I have led at the senior level in four different school districts both rural and urban, big and small. As a leadership consultant, I continue to support leadership of individuals, teams, boards and organizations in both the public and private sectors at various levels across Canada.
This blog is part of my leadership portfolio and I started it several years ago to document my thoughts on leadership in education. I have a Ph.D. in Curriculum, a Masters in Educational Leadership and I am an active practicing ICF accredited Executive Coach. I get great satisfaction from helping others regardless of the role they play in our systems. I also know that leadership at the executive level, whether in the public or private domain, has enormous overlaps in terms of challenges and the support required. I am fortunate to be asked to speak and facilitate at numerous events in a wide array of contexts and I always appreciate the chance to share in the growth and learning of individuals, teams, and districts.
