To prepare for Part 1 of the Discussion, consider educational leaders in your field that you know. Think about how the educational leaders you know exemplify or do not exemplify the concepts related to leading positive social change. What did the leaders do well or not do well, especially as they relate to initiating change? In addition, identify one scholarly resource on change leadership related to your post to share with your colleagues in the Discussion.
For Part 1 of the Discussion, post a description of the characteristics of an effective leader of change, providing specific examples from your own experience with leaders. Explain why leaders need to have these particular characteristics to be effective in initiating change. Be sure to include a reference to the scholarly resource you identified on change leadership, and explain how the reference relates to your post.
Be careful not to identify anyone by name. The emphasis in the assignment is not the individuals themselves, only in how you perceive their leadership skills and approaches.
To prepare for Part 2 of the Discussion, reflect on the problem statements you discussed in the Module 4 Discussion and select one problem statement to address for this part of the Discussion. Think about the key stakeholders in relation to your problem statement and consider why these stakeholders are relevant to the problem. What questions, related to the problem, might you ask these key stakeholders?
In determining key stakeholders, you might ask yourself:
Who will I need to obtain approval from in order to explore this problem?As it pertains to stakeholders, what are the risks and benefits of exploring this problem?
Who will I need to involve as participants in exploring this problem?
How will the possible outcomes of exploring this problem impact the stakeholders positively and/or negatively?
For Part 2 of the Discussion, post the key stakeholders related to your selected problem statement with an explanation as to why these stakeholders are relevant to the problem. Then, identify at least four questions about the problem to which you would like stakeholders to respond. Finally, explain why the responses may be important to understanding and/or addressing the problem.
In this module, you have revisited those problem statements, identified key stakeholders related to a specific problem, and determined essential questions that you will ask stakeholders in order to inform a positive change. You have considered that you must identify, inform, and involve many stakeholders in any plan to effect a positive change. Although many individuals have the ability to identify problems, leaders in education are those who take action to improve situations or solve problems.
For this Assignment, you will apply these skills to address a problem related to the case study you have been exploring throughout the course. What problems have you and your colleagues identified as you have explored the case study together?
Select one of those problems that you would like investigate further in order to effect a positive change. Assume the role of the leader in the planning for positive change related to the problem you identify and consider the steps you might take to effect change, and how they might inform an action plan for change. Then, download the Action Plan Template located in the Learning Resources section. Attached below. Use the template as a guide to assist and organize the different items that you need to investigate in order to move the plan for change in a positive direction.
Submit a 2- to 3-page paper in which you identify the change you would like to implement and explain the plan you would use to bring about the change. Be sure to address all the topics outlined in the template: goals, actions, time frame, stakeholders, and an evaluation strategy. Also include relevant resources that you have located in the library. Note the strategies you, as a leader in education, would take to facilitate change related to the problem you identified. Explain your rationale for the strategy you are proposing.
