The Kentucky Department of Education (KDE) Transformational Change Leadership Series, led by Mike Rutherford, consists of three one-day conference experiences offered in both Lexington (Central Bank Center) and Bowling Green (Hyatt Place) from 8:30 a.m. to 3:00 p.m.: 30 p.m. local time.
Participants interested in attending the sessions at the Central Bank Center in Lexington should mark their calendars to attend on September 21, October 26 and November 31. Attendees interested in attending the Hyatt Place location in Bowling Green should mark their calendars to attend on September 22, October 27 and December 1. Each conference experience also includes a 60-minute virtual support session before and after the conference. Every conference experience is designed for maximum engagement, relevance, and applicability. The lecture series and support sessions are free for attendees.
Lecture 1 will engage participants in an in-depth study of the nature and logic of transformational school leadership and how leadership for transformational change differs from leadership for continuous and incremental improvement. Topics will include self-awareness leadership concepts, characteristics of trusted organizations, servant leadership values, developing a personal leadership platform, collecting and interpreting data to support transformation of the school and the role of instructional leadership for transformational change.
Conference 2 will focus on designing and driving change, improvement science, leadership transitions, future and paradigm studies, creating meaningful work, and principles of sustainability.
Conference 3 will focus on exploring how organizational culture can be assessed and shaped to catalyze transformational change, build community, build voter voice, attract and retain talent, lead large groups, and how to market effectively a school’s vision for improvement.
Each participant interested in participating in the training series must complete the Registration Form no later than August 31, 2022. Questions regarding training should be directed to Tim Godbey at [email protected]
