International Education Leadership – A Global Playbook (COMMITMENT) | Global Take

This special edition of Global Take is the second of a six part series focused on Nick DeForest’s new book, International Education Leadership: A Global Playbook. The book is for directors, principals, teachers, coaches, athletic directors or anyone involved in an international school. The “playbook” centers around six key elements that all schools need to excel in: Core, Commitment, Care, Culture, Competition and Communication.

This second episode focuses on the element, Commitment and is hosted by Nick DeForest. Nick is joined by Chris Mott (Athletic Director at the International School Bangkok) who is one of the 40 international educators who also contributed to the book which hoped to ‘raise the game’ of schools all over the world.
