Social Artistry in Action in Aruba:
‘Collaboration: A New Way of Leadership’
On Feb 9, 2017 the University of Aruba launched its fourth cohort of 26 education leaders to explore ‘Collaboration: A New Way of Leadership’. Three cohorts of over 65 leaders have already completed the program. The program is built around Dr. Houston’s Four Levels of Awareness and is focused on personal and organizational development. Janet Sanders initiated the Social Artistry training in Aruba and has brought other social artists to participate, including Robertson Work, Doug Banner, Skye Burns and Scott Miller. Juliet Chieu and Pancho Geerman are Aruban faculty.
The following are the titles of each seminar:
Leadership for Collaboration: Navigating towards the Vision of Education
The psychology of leadership in a complex and dynamic educational environment
Embodying the new story of leadership for collaboration in theory and practice
Sustaining a community of practice to create solutions collaboratively
Each three day seminar meets on a Thursday, Friday and Monday. There are also 6 monthly 2-hour group meetings. Core faculty mentor each leader. Successful completion of this program leads to a Post-Bachelor Professional Development Certificate conferred by the University of Aruba through the Center for Lifelong Learning.
