KORCOS18 IEC has ended
We are here: Compassion, Creativity, Change.  

Let’s come together as a community of educators to reflect, grow and connect, empowering each other to create change agents for tomorrow.  What does it mean to be compassionate? What does it mean to be innovative? What does it mean to teach? To learn? To care?

We can’t wait to host you at GSIS for the Korea Council of Overseas Schools International Educators’ Conference 2018 (#KORCOSIEC18).  We are excited to make connections with the vision to create a better tomorrow.  That begins with the idea of a "We" being in the moment together, with the commitment to be our best selves for our students.  

Let’s do this.

Session Objectives:
1. To experience an approach to strategic planning and growth that is based on “Compassion, Creativity and Change"
2. To understand how using a strengths based approach to planning, “changes the conversation” and mobilizes teams to create and implement innovations they may not have previously envisioned

Session Description:
Strengths based planning is an approach for school growth and change that focuses on exploring and amplifying organizational strengths. Traditional models of change focus on deficits, weaknesses and problems. Strength based planning empowers organizations to identify successes, strengths, and imagine possibilities, which outgrow problems and create visions.

During the workshop you will experience the five stages of Defining, Discovering, Dreaming, Designing and Delivering on strategic planning.  Participants considering this workshop should bring with them an area of change to apply to the model. Steve discovered strengths based planning at a conference where a top tier school presented how they used this model to “change the conversation” and create their next strategic plan. So impressed was Steve, he began using this with his own school teams. Seeing the significant difference and positive impact, he completed formal Facilitator Training and now uses it in his consultation with schools and work with WASC.
