Growing the Capacity of Self and Others
A system is only as strong as the people within. Across the organization, people need to be supported and nurtured not only as individuals but as leaders who influence, affirm and nurture those around them. Processes must exist to strengthen and sustain schools and their supporting networks and structures as learning organizations. In these organizations, the collaborative and action-oriented processes of inquiry are part of an intentional professional learning plan that builds on the existing strengths of all and, in addition, provides ongoing job embedded professional learning to nurture and sustain their own growth and leadership journey whether in the classroom, or at the system level.
