A best-practice framework for
leadership in schools developed by
This elegant framework is built around three key questions that leaders in schools need to anticipate:
- Where are we going?
- Why will we follow?
- How will we get there?
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.
We fundamentally believe that standard leadership development programs fail to elicit the outcomes desired.
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.
A Unique Approach
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.
Leaders can read, watch, and listen to resources from our library of resources targeted at their development area.
Record reflections, activities they have tried in school, learnings from peers, and coaching/mentoring conversations.
Assess impact by getting progress feedback
Through the year leaders follow our continual improvement methodology.
Ensure your leaders are heading in the right direction. Focus on improving the leadership competencies that matter most in schools. The EI for Leaders framework is based on best-practice leadership competencies in schools.
You can’t improve what you don’t know. Leaders collect 360 feedback on how they are going from the people that matter.
After reflecting on feedback leaders come together to set S.M.A.R.T. development goals.
In the EI GROW portal leaders can reflect on their progress. They can also record activities they have tried, learnings gained from peers, and the output of coaching/mentoring conversations.
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
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.
