Developing a personal narrative

How to develop a personal narrative.

Core beliefs: creating a philosophy of leadership centres on inspiring in others a passion for lifelong learning and creating opportunities for the intellectual and social development of people around me.

 Creating a design cycle of these: conducting an annual needs assessment, establishing of programme targets, program development, program implementation and program evaluation. 

Issues that cause confusion: Social, political, economic, and ethical divisions, embedded in societal constructions of race, gender, class, sexual orientation, and language, add to the increasing difficulty of finding common, philosophical ground on how to best provide our nation’s people with a world class education.

As a leader, collaborating, dialogue and teamwork, can help to break down the societal barriers constructed by institutions, such as schools to build a unifying, educational and super culture that will support the diverse and ever-changing needs of the 21st century teachers and learners. 

Collaboration, teamwork and dialogue are cornerstones for the building of a firm, organisational foundations for generating institutional and community-based conversations to solve complex issues on education, and hopefully the broader society of the 21st century.

Building leadership capacity, is a key component for creating an environment supportive of lifelong learning and its reproduction within the cultures of school and society. Building a capacity in others to emerge as leaders, in their own right is a critical part of leading a group of people towards a common goal.

  1. Actively listening

Philosophy of leadership is to inspire in others a passion for life-long learning and establish opportunities for people to grow as intellectual and social beings
