Paul Sims will give our keynote address, "Two Leadership Styles Worth Considering." Paul, an associate professor of Educational Leadership at Concordia University Chicago, teaches courses about instructional and supervisory leadership at the masters and doctoral levels. Dr. Sims will use his diverse professional experiences at the high school and university levels to ask: Are you a leader? Is so, how do moral and service leadership theories fit into your everyday life? This session will invite you to think about your leadership style and how it applies to your current position.
