Connected Leadership


Successful schools overcome two related challenges: They share ideas rapidly and effectively across the whole school; and they encourage many people to be leaders.

In the past, a professional was someone who honed their own expertise, managed their own time, exercised their discretion and sought to meet clear standards or accountabilities. In the past, a leader was a manager; someone who had formal authority over a set of resources (budget, staffing, procedures) and who acquired their influence through the use of this authority: telling people what to do, basically.
