Schools webinar on leadership: Viviane Robinson on shifting the focus from change to improvement

Distinguished Professor Viviane Robinson, an expert in school leadership and school improvement, discussed her recent book Reduce Change to Increase Improvement ( Corwin, 2018). The book helps leaders to interrupt a relentless focus on change and move to a more productive focus on gaining and sustaining improvement. She contrasted two different approaches to leading improvement and provided practical strategies and examples that illustrate and explain why one approach is more effective than the other.
