Episode 9 - School Leadership Reimagined


What are Your School’s REAL Core Values?

Biggest Takeaways You Don't Want to Miss:
  • Your Core Values are a largely under-used but powerful secret weapon to help you not only build trust with your teachers, parents, and students in a way that makes everyone immediately more accountable.
  • Turning your Core Values into non-negotiables is a simple process, but once you do, you have so much more clarity and transparency which allows you make better decisions that move your school forward.

Have you ever endured one of those awful core values exercises? And then, once you’re done, you throw them up on the wall and never do anything with them again? You see, there’s difference between the core values we have on the wall and the ones that play out each day in school. ​In this episode, we’re going to examine what our REAL core values are and how we can leverage them in a powerful way to do everything from hold teachers more accountable, to shape our instructional program, to better communicate with parents and students.
