PLUACLD548
Standard 7: Management of the Learning Organization

Rewritten by Antonia Littleton

Suggested Prerequisites: 
  • You must hold instructional leader certification.
  • You must have access to a computer with internet connection.

Description/Abstract:
The purpose of this professional study is to cause educational leaders to reflect upon their practices​
and subsequently improve the way they lead in education. This study will be based on the content of the book The Multiplier Effect: Tapping the Genius Inside Our Schools by Liz Wiseman, Lois Allen, & Elise Foster. (You will receive a copy of the book & an LLP reflection journal.)

The best leaders not only know how to transfer ownership to others, they also know how to keep it there. We need educational leaders who, in times of scarcity, find ways to get more capability and productivity from their current resources. In this professional study, educational leaders will reflect on questions such as:

  1) What's the difference between deeply leveraging my resources and simply asking them to do more?
  2) What can I do to overcome a low-performing or diminishing individual on my team?

Requirements:
  • You must attend, participate in, and complete 9 weekly face-to-face OR 3 full-day training sessions.
  • You must respond weekly to discussion/reflection questions via blog.
  • You must complete ongoing professional reading and journal reflections.
  • You must provide proof of implementation of Multiplier Experiments in school/district through journal entries and anecdotal evidence.
  • You must earn at least 1,000 points out of a possible 1,200 points.

After successful completion of this professional study, participants will receive one (1) PLU. This professional study will be offered up to 3 years.

PayPal & credit/debit card payments accepted. Registration fees are to be paid in full via PayPal or at the initial face-to-face meeting. Visit www.learninglittlepeople.com to pay your registration fee. No late registration permitted.
