Leading with Purpose: building sustainable teams

Dear Colleagues,

Building a sustainable team is not something that happens by accident. It requires careful recruitment and retainment processes, effective communication, and a leadership style that adapts to the situation and strikes a balance between clear guidance and giving autonomy to your team. While we spend a lot of time in education encouraging our departments, teachers, and students to collaborate, we perhaps sometimes neglect to discuss with them what good collaboration looks like and how to make it happen. While we probably all have an experience of working in effective teams and dysfunctional teams, if we were asked to pin down exactly why one was a positive experience and the other a disaster, it might be difficult to identify the structural and procedural reasons.

This two day forum, set in the beautiful Novotel resort in Kuta, Lombok, will allow busy school leaders and HR Managers to take a few days away from the hustle and bustle of school life and to focus on personal and professional development. Our theme revolves around the concept that an effective and sustainable team is not just a happy accident, but rather something that can be planned for, observed, guided, and built in a deliberate and mindful manner.

It is our goal that participants will come away from this weekend with the knowledge, skills, and understandings to build and grow collaborative and empowered teams that are driven, not by personality or gimmicks,but by a genuine sense of meaningful,sustainable purpose.

The forum will be hosting workshops in a range of topics including Human Resource Management and Train The Trainer, Recruitment Processes and sessions on the latest developments for SPK Schools.
