Evidence-Based Leadership provides an operational framework to improve execution and achieve outcomes. Leaders in organizations and school systems apply the framework to ensure alignment of goals, behaviors, and processes; to improve employee engagement; and to introduce a system of accountability across pillar measures (i.e., Quality, Service, People, Finance, Safety).
When the Evidence-Based Leadership framework is implemented, a school system and its leadership team find a dynamic way to respond to the district’s unique challenges. For example, if your district is challenged with teacher turnover or not attracting the best candidates for your leadership pool, the framework provides guidance for the process of establishing smart goals, measures, and strategic actions, and of continuous improvement.
The framework’s Execution Flywheel™ (above) serves to drive performance to reach excellence—destination high performance! The hub of the Flywheel centers on “principles, pillar results, and passion.” When district and school leaders help teachers and staff reconnect to their passion to do worthwhile work, they are inspired to put in place the principles that turn the flywheel faster and faster until it gains momentum that is unstoppable in improving execution and achieving outcomes.
In order to produce evidence-based results, we use the Evidence-Based Leadership Framework and the continuous improvement (Flywheel) process to work with district leaders to build an evaluation process that is transparent to all stakeholder groups. The ultimate goal is to produce a best place to work environment, and improve student learning and parent satisfaction.
