In this compelling webinar, Mr. Carter delves into the pivotal role of disposition in effective leadership, focusing on five core traits that positively impact school culture. Drawing on his own knowledge and experience as a school and district leader, he discusses how gratitude, relational skills, enthusiasm, authenticity, and teachability enhance a leader’s influence, resulting in improved academic outcomes, stronger connections with others, and a positive school culture. 

What You Will Learn: 

  • Acquiring Core Leadership Traits: Gain insights into the five essential traits and understand how to integrate them into your leadership approach. 
  • Impactful Leadership Beyond Positional Power: Explore how effective and influential leadership extends beyond formal positions, focusing on character, disposition, and temperament as key drivers of success. 
  • Transformative Strategies for Positive School Culture: Acquire practical strategies that will enable you to foster a more positive school culture, strengthen connections, and enhance academic outcomes within your educational community.
