ISM research has shown that a positive, professional growth focused faculty culture is one of the primary predictors of student satisfaction, performance, and enthusiasm. Schools left unchecked will eventually become adult-centered organizations by nature of the fact that adults stay while students leave, and that adults hold the majority of the power. A constant effort must be made to ensure that decisions are student-centered and that all actions taken are of benefit to students.
However, schools often make the mistake of sacrificing their faculty members in the name of student-centeredness, which ultimately is bad for kids. An academic leader’s primary responsibility is to expand the capacity of the adults in the community to deliver the mission. In a negative faculty culture, the best teachers often leave (or stay and become toxic), mediocrity is the norm, and poor teachers are protected. In a positive faculty culture, good teachers become great, poor or toxic teachers leave, and extraordinary teachers thrive. In this Webinar, learn how to support your teachers so that they are motivated and energized to deliver the mission to your students with enthusiasm and excellence.
