Full description for Creative Educational Leadership
Creativity is now essential in a global economy, for business, and for the benefit of society. To enable young people to flourish in an uncertain future, education needs to acknowledge creativity as an essential life skill rather than restricting it to activities of a broadly artistic nature. This book helps educational leaders to identify the tensions within education systems that hinder the development of creative capacity and may influence decision-making towards pragmatic rather than creative solutions. In order to develop creative capacity, leadership itself needs to be a creative action to resolve limitations, and to develop original solutions to the challenge of educating for work and life in the twenty-first century. Recognising the vital importance of creativity to young people facing a rapidly changing world, Jacquie Turnbull reveals how, in highly effective leadership, a unique combination of values, relationships and personal attributes enables creativity. Packed with examples of successful practice, the book challenges you to build creative capacity - within staff teams and for young people - and to develop as a creative leader yourself.
