Using Leadership and Motivational Theory to Support the Development of Leadership Competencies of The Ontario Leadership Framework
MetadataShow full item record
The Ontario Leadership Framework (OLF) recognizes that effective school leadership is a critical component for organizational success. Specifically, the OLF attempts to provide a leadership road-map by identifying leadership competencies for educational administrators, as well as the personal resources necessary to meet those competencies. However, the OLF does not go far enough in providing school leaders with the knowledge and skills necessary to meet those leadership competencies. The purpose of this project was to provide a comprehensive resource for school leaders in their aim to be effective in leadership roles. Using a backwards-design model, a three-part workshop was developed as part of this project. It is rooted in both leadership and motivational theory to support school leaders in meeting the competencies of effective leadership. Through their participation in the leadership exercises and knowledge gathering opportunities, participants will develop their understandings of concepts of leadership, motivation, and the context in which both leaders and followers operate. Participants will be provided with the selection of tools for building their leadership capacity in a meaningful and sustainable way. The culminating activity requires participants to draw on their knowledge of leadership and motivation theory as they develop a leadership plan that is directed towards meeting various OLF competencies of effective leadership. The overall objective is for participants to transfer their knowledge and skills to the school context, allowing them to be more effective in meeting their professional practice needs.
