This knowledge is based in contemporary research and is designed to improve the learning outcomes of all students.

This knowledge is based in contemporary research and is designed to improve the learning outcomes of all students. The challenge for the educational leader is to mobilise and energise their colleagues so that the overall commitment is to putting energy into actions arising from this research so that improved student learning follows.

Michael Fullan often talks about the leader not being the ‘heroic individual’ or the ‘lone ranger’ achieving momentous feats in the face of difficult odds but rather one with the capacity to engender individual commitment but above all collective mobilisation.

How do you lead your team to achieve this collective mobilisation in light of the new knowledge that you create and share?
