What purpose brought you to education? The main goal of my colleagues and I is to lead school districts to achieve excellence with the purpose of providing students with a great place to learn, teachers with a great place to teach, and parents with confidence that their children are getting a great education.
We work toward this purpose by partnering with select school districts across the United States who have a true commitment to excellence and want to serve as a model for becoming some of the best school districts in the world. The cornerstone of the evidence-based process is leaders and employees executing measurable and aligned evaluation systems focused on:
Students improving their achievement levels;
Employees believing their leaders provide a good work environment;
Employees providing support service excellence, and
Parents feeling satisfied with their child’s education.
The evidence-based continuous improvement flywheel serves as the centerpiece of these areas (employee engagement, parent satisfaction, support services, and student engagement) with leaders and school districts and shows the need to drive performance to reach excellence. The hub of the performance-driven flywheel centers on “principles, pillar results, and passion.”
When leaders and organizations help employees reconnect to their passion to do worthwhile work, employees are inspired to put in place the principles that turn the flywheel faster and faster until it gains momentum that is unstoppable in achieving organizational goals. This is the importance of the goal of leading school districts to excellence with focus on Student Engagement, Employee Engagement, Support Services, and Parent Satisfaction.
What happens? Districts and schools achieve evidence-based results and achieve our ultimate purpose is to produce better places for teachers to teach, employees to work, and students to learn, and for parents with confidence that their children are getting a great education.
Join leaders with proven results at What’s Right in Education 2013. Learn from and connect with high performing educational leaders, and discuss how to set board and superintendent metrics and cascade those across all levels of leadership in the district; identify what “right” looks like in service excellence; and become part of a district leadership collaborative.
