AA#1355: Leading Major Change in Education: What the Beatles Can Teach Us

No address available.

The success of school leaders in effecting significant and sustained change is somewhat sketchy over
time. Changes come and go, often failing, fading away or surviving only minimally. This course aims to
help school leaders recognize the "big picture" process for change. Using an approach combining
research on change leadership in education with a case study of large-scale, fundamental cultural
change, participants will view the change process using a new lens. The case study used is, The Beatles.

During the 1960's, the Beatles were a dominant force in both the music and culture of the times. As
innovative musicians and song writers, they pushed the limits of the rock and roll genre and their quest
for excellence is evident in their sustained impact several generations later. Their leadership skills were
also evident culturally, as they helped to define the look, vocabulary, fashion and values of the time.
What can the study of the world's greatest band teach us about leadership and excellence in education?
The goal of the day is to answer that question with specific knowledge, strategies and skills to
incorporate in your professional practice.
