|Waldorf Administration Leadership Series
( available)Waldorf schools are self administered, which means that most decisions are made on site by faculty, staff and trustees. Yet site based management also presents significant challenges. Sometimes faculty members are selected to leadership roles based on their pedagogical expertise and the confidence of their colleagues but without necessary skills in communication, group dynamics, facilitation, conflict resolution etc. Likewise, a school often hires administrative personnel with expertise in finances, development, admissions, marketing etc who have the needed skill sets but do not have a background in Waldorf education or the philosophy, Anthroposophy, that guides decision making in a Waldorf school. There is a need for greater role clarity so groups, committees and individuals work collaboratively rather than at cross purposes.
