"If … my role requires that I hold you accountable for some action or outcome, then I have an equal and complementary responsibility to assure that you have the capacity to do what I am asking you to do."
Effective Leadership is the most crucial element to a successful organization. Effective leadership includes:
- Creating a culture of shared leadership and collaboration,
- Using data to target a few goals for improved student learning,
- Following through to continually execute strategies and monitor results, and
- Motivating and developing other leaders within the organization.
Every organization can become high performing with effective training, coaching and support. Dramatic improvement is possible by developing the capacity of current staff and realigning existing resources.
Student learning improves when teachers implement evidence-based, high leverage instructional practices. Powerful professional learning is essential for helping teachers develop this instructional expertise.
The goal of our work is to develop sufficient capacity within the organization in order to sustain the work long after Targeted Leadership Consulting has concluded its services.
