High performing leaders know they really can do a task more quickly and effectively and it’s easy to let new employees just observe. However, the best way for employees to learn and grow their skills is to complete tasks themselves with coaching and support from their leader.
Great leaders intentionally create structures and processes that produce transparent results in their organizations—results that create passion in their employees and organizational cultures in which employees have purpose, do worthwhile work, and make a difference.
Mentor New Teachers, Leaders. The first few months are critical for new teachers and leaders. Consider conducting 30- and 90-day one-on-one meetings with new hires to your school district. In addition, establish a mentor to new hires. Leaders of new employees play an important role in their overall happiness. By providing a mentor, and conducting 30- and 90-day conversations, leaders show new teachers and leaders that they are interested in and have a sense of ownership for their personal success.
