Collaboration

Current research for positive school reform and development identifies collaboration as a central element for success. Our framework provides the foundation for such improvement by focusing on developing leaders within the organization.

Three key elements for effective collaboration include:

  • Sharing a Common Vision
  • Building Relationships
  • Establishing Trust

Empowerment

Effective school leaders recognize that Empowerment and Collaboration go hand-in-hand. This knowledge encompasses the development of a clear vision that is shared by all and that goes beyond the written statement to one that is measureable. For this to happen, leaders must be willing and able to communicate knowledge and information in a proficient and precise manner. Our framework provides the foundation for developing such systems.

The three key elements of empowerment begin with:

  • Developing a Common Vision
  • Assessing Current and Potential Challenges
  • Establishing Open and Effective Two-Way Communication
