EI for Leaders
A best-practice framework for leadership in schools developed by education leaders.
This elegant framework is built around three key questions that leaders in schools need to anticipate:
Transform your leadership
We believe that for leaders to transform they need to fully understand their current state, recognize the gap to the future state, and develop the capability and competency to close that gap.
Most leadership programs fail because they do not change the underlying culture that creates and supports existing leadership paradigms. To transform the culture one must change both the fundamental behaviors (competencies) and beliefs (mindset), as well as the structures of leadership.
Unlike other solutions we don’t stop at feedback and goal setting. Our portal enables leaders to plan and track activities towards meeting their goals.
Collect 360 degree feedback
You can’t improve what you don’t know. Leaders collect 360° feedback from the people that matter to find out how they are going.
Set goals based on your feedback
Set a S.M.A.R.T. development goal. After reflecting on feedback leaders come together to set tracked development goals following a S.M.A.R.T. outline – Specific, Measurable, Attainable, Realistic and Time-Bound.
Plan and track your development goals
In the EI portal leaders record reflections, activities they have tried, learnings gained from peers, and insights from coaching/mentoring conversations. All this is recorded as an achievement diary which can be printed and shared.
Measure your progress
Let others be the judge and enable leaders to take stock on how far they’ve come. Compare feedback data and see if your leaders have shifted perceptions.
Engage with an “always on” approach
Leadership is a complex mix of skills. Your leaders should be continually improving so we’ve made the process simple and easy to do every year. Leaders start from the top again and discover what next to improve.
Linked to standards
Our solution can be customised to map to local professional standards or frameworks. If you have your own standards or frameworks for your school get in touch to hear how we can do the mapping.
