I recently asked the team of teachers I lead what they thought about my LEADERSHIP.
The focus areas:
-Further develop my ability to coach other team members
-Focus on providing PD or leadership opportunities within the team / at team meetings
-Improve my organisation skills
-Increase my influence and motivation of team members
PRIORITY- change in leadership:
- It is clear that my team see my leadership organisational skills as a genuine concern. Therefore, I need to make this a high priority. Identifying what this is will be a first step.
- The second area that needs highlighting and changing is team development. I will work through a process to further enhance this.
These were the questions.
LEADERSHIP STOCKTAKE INSTRUCTIONS
Rate your leadership performance on each of the concepts outlined by putting a cross on the ‘spoke’ between 0 & 10. 0=weak & 10 =strong.
Ask your self-

The above pictures do not have the names of the Collaborative teachers I asked to fill in the form. Below is the table of the raw data. I have highlighted the the areas I wish to make a SHIFT IN MY LEADERSHIP PEDAGOGY AND PRACTICE.
