Abstract
A new program, called 'Leaders Lead: L5 at work' provides access to professional learning online, providing leaders and aspirant school leaders with support through 15 modules that address well-being, understanding leadership, building school culture, strategic improvement, sharing power and using influence to nurture change. The consultatively-developed 'L5 at work' framework is shaped by a number of key propositions relating to: knowing yourself, having courage, balancing personal and professional demands, influencing others, overcoming teacher isolation, challenging notions of status and power, overturning fixed mindsets and nurturing collective visioning. Adult learning principles, distributed learning, transformational leadership, experiential learning, communities of practice and situativity theory form the key theoretical frameworks.
