Building Capacity Through Leadership

Leadership - Summary

Effective leadership acknowledges the agency of all members of the learning community to take on formal and informal leadership roles to advance the school mission.

To create the culture and conditions necessary for all to take on leadership roles, leaders lead by establishing a shared purpose, encouraging shared responsibilities and building leadership capacity in the learning community.

Effective leaders:

    • Develop strong personal relationships.

    • Work collaboratively with others.

    • Value and operate with diversity.

    • Are open and share

    • Listen to unterstand

    • Praise more than criticize
