As Montessori leaders we too often take on the role of chief cook and bottle washer with little time and energy left over to think strategically or plan the future of our school community.
It is vital that we work proactively to develop the mindsets and systems that will prepare us to lead and support our communities through change, challenges, and growth.
In this one hour video presentation, Jonathan Wolff uses the concepts from the "Adaptive Leadership" approach by Ronald Heifetz and Donald Laurie to help you navigate the changes, planned and unplanned, that inevitably occur in the life of a school leader.
Jonathan has over 30 years of experience in the Montessori field, as an AMI credentialed teacher, school leader, keynote speaker, author and trainer.
The primary focus of his current consulting practice is on leadership development – designing best practices and writing books and articles that enhance individual and organizational performance.
Jonathan has an incisive ability to apply Dr. Montessori's educational constructs to training adults. His creative, interactive programs, his humorous and inspiring teaching style, and his deep insight into the needs of people and organizations are in high demand by organizations around the world.
