23. Finding Your Giant


Zachary Walker

Plenaire sessie
 Zachary Walker, John Amaechi

Deze plenaire sessie wordt in het Engels gehouden.

In this engaging, provocative talk Drs. Zachary Walker and John Amaechi describe the importance of recognising your impact as a leader and giant.  Based on research, personal examples, and humorous anecdotes from both the workplace and life, Zachary and John will ask you to look closely at what you do and the power you have within your schools.  Be prepared to understand you are disproportionately powerful and that interactions that you might think are inconsequential are life-changing for others.
