Client: Mona Vale Public School
In 2013, ThinkEvans worked with Mona Vale Public School to design a professional development program for the Executive Leadership Team. In consultation with the team, Principal Consultant Tanya van der Wall identified specific opportunities that would enhance the Executive’s leadership capabilities.
This involved working through the issues in a series of 5 workshops during the year, focusing on decision making processes and communicating decisions, understanding and identifying team roles, managing through change and building contemporary leadership skills. In this process, the senior team identified opportunities both to develop their own skills and to work more effectively as a decision making team.
In October 2013, Tanya presented the highlights to the whole staff of the school, who appreciated the opportunity to gain some insight into how the senior leadership team works and how they could work more effectively within their own teams.
