You’re Doing So Much Right...
So, Why are the Results & Returns Still Not What they Need to Be?
...and What’s the Missing Piece that will Bring them All Together?
HINT: You already know the answer. You’ve seen it at work - you just haven’t known how to pull it off… until now!
There’s a difference between knowing what to do and being engaged to do it.
Engaged students perform better. Engaged teachers are better at engaging students. Engaged principals are better at engaging teachers. Engaged superintendents and central office professionals are better at engaging principals. See a pattern? Of course you do, and you’ve seen this pattern for a while. Marzano and DuFour, Schlecthy, and Kouzes and Posner have all independently studied the impact of leadership engagement on overall student and campus engagement, consistently producing measurable returns and desired results.
Which, of course, leads to the question: What Creates Engagement?
Engagement is your willingness and ability to do something about any specific role, goal, project, or task. It’s how committed, dedicated, and aligned you are to whatever you’re doing or seeking to achieve. No matter how much ability someone has, without motivation and buy-in, very little effort will be applied. It’s time for you, as an Educational Leader, to break through the unspoken rules and traditions, and create a culture of engagement and shared leadership.
And the next question: How Do You Learn this Engagement Process?
