EDP-6240: Personal/Organztl Change

Schools face many challenges today. If one ‘peels the onion’ one finds that behind the external issues of deficits, low salaries, interpersonal conflict, and lack of support for leadership there is often an underlying need to rekindle the sources of inspiration and find a more collaborative approach. By bringing together the various groups represented in a typical school, this course attempts to model new ways of working together. Our classrooms feature the magic of seeing the ‘whole child’; can our organizations learn to embrace whole-systems thinking? Some of the topics to be covered include: group dynamics, leadership styles, the wisdom of human physiology and the planets, working with conflict, communication, mediation, artistic practice, and finding the balance between personal and professional demands. These themes will be supported through exercises from Eurythmy in the Workplace. Participants will take up some of the current issues facing our schools and design strategies to work toward closer collaboration.
