Dispositional Leadership

Art Costa, California State University, Sacramento, Calif., and Gary Whiteley, Alaska Administrator Coaching Project, Alaska Kenai, Ala.

When school leaders come face-to-face with dichotomies, dilemmas, and uncertainties without clear answers, thinking dispositions can help them respond effectively. Thinking dispositions are mental models that focus on how to think rather than on what to think. This session will define and explore six thinking dispositions, and then take participants through practice activities to develop their awareness of challenges and skillful, effective, and rehearsed responses to those challenges.

Audience Level: All
Audience: Superintendents, Central Office Staff, School-Based Administrators, and Teacher Leaders
