Connecting Back to Purpose:
As you move from gathering data to reflection and using that data, the most important next step is to connect back to purpose.
Teachers want to make a difference in the lives of students and their families. Here’s what we’ve learned: leaders make a difference in the lives of the people in an organization. That’s what makes us, as leaders, passionate about our work.
The Evidence-Based Leadership℠ framework embeds processes and practices that urge leaders to connect with the hearts and minds of those they lead. Building better educational systems is all about leadership and about every person in a system having opportunities to lead every day.
Studer Education℠ coach, Dr. Melissa Matarazzo, shares her thoughts on this idea of “Connect to Purpose”:
“A key phrase for our Studer Education team is ‘Connect to Purpose.’ We mean, remember why we are here. Connect to the reason we work hard, every day, to make education a better place for students, families, employees, educators, and leaders. It’s important that all leaders connect to their purpose, especially when our challenges seem insurmountable.”
What’s the purpose for your leadership? Connect to your purpose, every day, to be the most passionate and effective leader you can be.
