School Leadership Reimagined -The Difference Between a Will Problem and a Skill Problem

EPISODE 127

The Difference Between a Will Problem
and a Skill Problem

Biggest Takeaways You Don't Want to Miss:
  • You can’t solve a will problem with a skill solution and vice versa.
  • A skill problem is usually a matter of “can the teacher?” A will problem is usually a matter of “does the teacher?”
  • With the right solution, you can stop wasting time giving teachers what they don’t need and start giving teachers exactly what they need to grow and succeed.

One of the biggest mistakes that leaders make is that they treat all problems the same. But when it comes to helping your teachers improve, all teacher challenges are not created equally and if you use the same tools to address every teacher challenge, you and your teachers will end up frustrated.

Builders know that at the heart of any teacher challenge is either a will problem or a skill problem and the more you are able to tell the difference, the more effective you'll be at helping teachers continually grow. So, on today's episode, discover the difference between a will problem and a skill problem so that you can handle all teacher challenges #LikeABuilder.
