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

This special edition of Global Take is the first of a six part series focused on Nick DeForests’ new book, International Education Leadership: A Global Playbook. The book is for directors, principals, teacher, 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 first episode focuses on the element, Core and is hosted by Nick DeForest. Nick is joined by Dave Horner (Director of Athletics and Student Life at the Inter-Community School of Zurich) 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.
