Powerful Leadership: The Role of Trust, Self-efficacy, and Feedback Send to All WASA Active Members
Join educators, researchers and authors Jenni Donahoo and Megan Tschannen-Moran for Powerful Leadership: The Role of Trust, Self-efficacy, and Feedback! an engaging virtual workshop. Megan will teach us how to garner power through fostering trust and bolstering collective efficacy. We’ll explore how to do this through offering clear, specific feedback and adopting a focus on strengths. Jenni will facilitate learning about the role self-efficacy plays as it relates to women in leadership positions. Efficacy beliefs influence whether leaders think erratically or strategically; what course of action we pursue; our reactions to stress and coping strategies; how much effort we put forth in given endeavors; and how long we persevere in the face of obstacles. We will self-assess our leadership efficacy and consider ways to strengthen efficacy over time.
Friday, January 12 | 8:30-11:00 a.m.
Please help pave a pathway for additional women to serve as educational leaders in Washington, by extending a personal invitation to someone you’d like to see taking the next step in their career.

Megan Tschannen-Moran is a Professor of Educational Leadership at the William & Mary School of Education. Growing out of her fourteen years of experience as the founder and principal of a school serving a primarily low-income and minority student population in a distressed neighborhood of Chicago, she is motivated to work at the intersection of theory and practice so that schools grow in their capacity to serve all students well. Her research explores the social psychology of schools, and especially those factors that allow for children and adults to thrive in school. She has investigated the influence of trust, teacher self-efficacy, collective efficacy beliefs, school climate, and teacher professionalism on student learning and well-being. She and her husband developed the evocative coaching model that is person-centered, no-fault, and strengths-based to support the work of teachers and educational leaders. Her most recent scholarly endeavor is the development of the Vibrant School Scale, with its three subscales that assess the degree to which schools foster enlivened minds, emboldened voices, and playful learning.
