School Leadership Reimagined - It all starts with your purpose

EPISODE 145

It all starts with your Purpose

Biggest Takeaways You Don't Want to Miss:
  • Just like you would never build a house without a strong foundation, you cannot build a strong school without a solid Purpose.
  • Your vision, mission, and core values aren’t just pretty slogans on a wall or in a binder. Your vision, mission, and core values affect everything you do at your school.
  • Leaders waste time batting away at one symptom after another, Builders spend their time establishing a clear purpose so that they can stop putting out fires and prevent fires altogether.

If you really want to get to the root cause of your challenges, you need to understand the School Hierarchy of Needs. In this week's episode, we explore the Purpose portion of the hierarchy and discuss how every challenge you are facing in your school right now has its root in either your vision, mission, or core values.

If you don't get these right, nothing else you do will be fully effective. Just as you would never build a house without first establishing the foundation, it is no use building a school without first establishing a strong foundation.

So tune in today to discover how to get your foundation right #LikeABuilder.
