What is Buildership?
The act of building; the position or function of a builder; the act of growing or increasing something to a high point or level, the act of creating something according to a systematic plan.
For years, we have been told that to build a great school, we need to exercise transformational leadership. But, after working in really tough schools in desperate need of transformation, I have learned that leadership is no longer enough.
Transformation doesn't happen by accident.
It is a principled way of thinking, acting, and being that pervades every interaction and decision. It’s not just about convincing people to do as we want or dragging them towards some lofty goal. It’s about moving beyond simply leading to building something better and inviting others to become a part of it.
Becoming a builder means taking a different path than traditional leadership. It means zigging when everyone else is zagging. It means challenging the traditional notions of leadership. It means offering those we lead something better.
