Good and authentic leadership is defined by both the legacy it leaves behind as well as its inspiration for future generations. In his book Legacy, James Kerr opens a critical dialogue surrounding theories of successful leadership he developed while travelling with the New Zealand All Blacks rugby team, a sporting outfit that has maintained a century of success. This session will examine the ways in which these lessons in leadership can be used for staff development.

Learning Objectives

  • Apply best practices from James Kerr’s Legacy, including the development of authentic leaders, enacting change in an organization, and developing culture through reflection on group dynamics.
  • Analyze suggested programming such as LEADS (Social Change Model), ELI, Leadership Development Program, Departmental All-Staff Training, and Organizational Culture Development.
  • Understand how to use the Presence Model in staff meeting in-services to develop authentic leaders.
