Collaborative Leadership May 08 2014
The Pedagogical Section Council (PSC) in its work together provides our Waldorf schools with an active model of collaborative leadership difficult to find in today’s contentious society. Together our Council members study, practice artistically, and consider meditatively the challenges and successes in our Waldorf schools.
Perhaps their deepest and most significant practice is in that of devotion. Their completely volunteer efforts include dedicated imagining of the unfolding human being into the work of Waldorf schools and the practice of Waldorf teachers in their daily consciousness. This might just be the finest gift possible to our movement on behalf of children. In collaborative leadership a model of honesty and respect creates something for children to emulate: a “horizontal leadership” from mutual recognition instead of “top-down” decision-making.
