The Adaptive Leader

Change and challenge are constants in education. School leaders today need to be agile and ready for anything. This issue will look at the mindsets and traits of adaptive school leaders, those who are best able to lead through change. How do these leaders make decisions, communicate with stakeholders, and ensure the primacy of effective teaching and learning? What support systems and training do they need? We seek stories of leaders who have led effectively in times of transition or high risk, and examples of strategies for leading through change (including as part of social justice and equity initiatives) while maintaining relationships and morale.
