BOOK TALK: DR. ELEANOR DRAGO-SEVERSON
HELPING EDUCATORS GROW: STRATEGIES AND PRACTICES FOR LEADERSHIP DEVELOPMENT

Wednesday, DECEMBER 12, 2012, 3:30-5:00pm; 306 Russell

How can we prepare practicing and aspiring education leaders for the complex, adaptive challenges they face? In Helping Educators Grow, Eleanor Drago-Severson presents a new approach to leadership development.

The book takes as its starting point the premise that adult development is leadership development—that is, the task of school leaders is to develop the capacities of adults as well as students. Drawing on the principles of constructive-developmental theory, Drago-Severson offers a framework for conceptualizing growth based on the core elements of care, respect, trust, collaboration, and intentionality.

Widely respected for her groundbreaking work in adult development, leadership, and capacity building in learning communities, Drago-Severson provides the tools and concepts to make any professional learning initiative a developmental opportunity for individuals and groups in a variety of contexts: university-based seminars, professional development workshops, professional learning communities, or peer-to-peer networks.

Refreshments will be served.
