Education Executive Leaders

Arrow Leadership offers a specialist Executive Leaders Program aimed at the next generation of leaders in the Education sector.

The Arrow Leadership Executive Leaders Program focuses on two key areas: character and capability.  Our goal is to develop Christian leaders who are up to the challenges of modern organisational and professional life.  When their work is done in the name of Jesus, who could demand less?

The ideal applicant is someone with a deep commitment to the Education sector and a role that involves leadership of people, resource management and/or culture.  Our goal is to develop and equip men and women who will be the emerging senior executives in the Education sector.

The Programs have a common core curriculum:

  • Module 1: The Character and Integrity of the Leader: developing a Christian mind on leadership, addressing the danger of self deception, understanding individual preferences and their impact, balancing determination and humility, building supportive and challenging relationships.
  • Module 2: Leading a Team: the five disciplines of effective team leadership, measuring and improving team performance, making conflict a resource, giving and receiving constructive feedback, managing stakeholders and interdependence, leading change.
  • Module 3: Leading and Transforming the School: developing and implementing strategy, diagnosing and influencing culture, balancing competing stakeholder expectations, identifying and managing risk, communication, staying true to purpose.

Each Program employs case studies and scenarios relevant to the Education sector and uses presenters with a proven track record of effective leadership in that sector.

Each participant is assigned a coach who guides and supports them throughout the Program.  Coaches are assigned thoughtfully according to the needs and location of each participant.  All coaches are experienced in the Education sector.
