Leadership is a choice
When we choose to become leaders we make a conscious decision to serve others – including those who report to us and who we have a responsibility to lead, develop and support.
High-performing leaders also recognize that this choice impacts how well we are able to live and fulfill the mission of the organization and ensure quality outcomes for those we serve.
Engaged Leaders Want to Be Developed
Studer Education administers an organizational assessment as a service to leaders. One of the questions asks, how well does your current leader training prepare you to lead for success in your organization?
The typical rating is fair. Fair isn’t good enough for creating cultures for organizational excellence.
Dr. Janet Pilcher’s book, Hardwiring Excellence in Education, highlights the Nine Principles® Framework, which enhances leadership skills to improve all aspects of work and organizations. This framework has been pivotal in guiding organizations toward achieving top-quality results, serving as a foundation for excellence and driving partners to attain national quality awards.
These principles and associated tactics are a roadmap for organizations to become world-class, ensuring long-term, sustainable results.
Identify & Diagnose
The first thing we do is identify the highest organizational needs and apply a diagnostic to determine a starting point to measure improvements.
We then work with leaders to create an action plan to develop people on the aligned tactics. We teach and coach leaders to support people to achieve at their highest potential.
Validate & Improve
Once the tactic is in place, we check with leaders to determine areas working well and those to improve.
We offer leadership development in various formats and modes of delivery.
One of the ways that we help develop leaders is by providing opportunities for our partners to learn from other partners through our learning networks and regional workshops.
We believe that we are better at what we do when we learn from each other.
