Additionally, Dr. Paula Cordeiro, the Dean of The School of Leadership and Education Sciences at the University of San Diego, will be the keynote speaker at this event and will review the elements of leadership that are universal and applicable to organizations in all sectors, including business, government, nonprofits, and education. Dr. Cordeiro will explore challenges to fostering change in organizations and discuss techniques that can be used by leaders in two different aspects of leadership challenges- adaptive and technical. Following this discussion of general leadership, she will describe her view that the cultural differences of educational institutions from those in other sectors, such as business, require unique leadership practices and techniques. Next the importance of ‘trust’ will be explored. Finally, Dr. Cordeiro will describe two models in which to view leadership in educational institutions: ethical and invitational – and explore leadership strategies unique to each model.
