Module - Leadership for Change

Welcome to this module where we are dealing with challenges that can occur when leaders are introducing various changes into their organization, specifically when it concerns changes as to values, norms, culture and behavior.

To introduce CRC in educational contexts is clearly one of these situations when leadership for change is vital. Note that this is important for leaders at all levels, including teachers and students. Pro-active leadership is needed for change and to effectively use pro-active leadership we have to understand the concept of Space of Action, how it is identified and how to expand it.
