Episode 3: Leaning into Change

Published on: 30th January, 2022

What does it take for a leader to drive change? The answer might surprise you. Leaders have a responsibility that often leads to the trap of doing it all. Actually a leader's role is to create conditions in which change can occur.

Darrin's focus in this episode is leading leaders toward collective efficacy. How do we include more voices in the change process leading to more ownership of the necessary change?

Want to work with Darrin in YOUR school? Interested in having Darrin lead a two day leadership seminar with your leadership team to create this collective efficacy and focus on each others strengths?
