9P | REFLECTIVE PRACTICE
The way to move forward is to do more of what’s getting us positive results and to correct what’s not working. Reflective practice is a process of deliberately pausing, scrutinizing the details of our progress or an outcome, and determining future actions.
9P | DEVELOP ASPIRING LEADERS
Aspiring leaders are people that want to be developed; they are continuous learners. They thrive from an environment with opportunities to learn, grow, and improve their leadership skills. As a current leader in the organization, think about what the future needs of the organization may be. How can you prepare new leaders for future leadership positions?
9P | BOOST THE EMPLOYEE EXPERIENCE
Employees can become disengaged when they’re made to feel like they’re not listened to or appreciated for the work that they do. When efforts and accomplishments go unrecognized employees may start to wonder, “Why am I doing this?” To keep people engaged, leaders must remind them of the meaningful outcomes they help to create.
SE | BUILDING THE CONDITIONS FOR A LEARNING CULTURE
When was the last time you tried something new? Learning and improvement happen when people leave their comfort zone and take on uncharted territory. As leaders in education, it is our mission to help adults and students leave their comfort zones.
