Creating A Vision May 30, 2012 Al Bertani,
Session Leader A clear vision can help everyone
understand why you are asking people to do
something different. The clearer the vision -
what you are trying to transform the easier
for people to see the path forward. The leader
is the person responsible for helping build a
vision that is the glue that holds things
together and makes sense of the transformation
for both the mind and the heart.

By Setting Direction Charting a clear course
that everyone understands, establishing high
expectations and using data to track progress and
performance. By Developing People Providing
teachers and others in the system with the
necessary support and training to succeed. By
Making the Organization Work Ensuring that the
entire range of conditions and incentives in
districts and schools fully supports rather than
inhibits teaching and learning.

How Leadership Influences Student
LearningWallace Foundation - 2004Leithwood
Seashore Louis Anderson and Wahlstrom
By Setting Direction Evidence suggests that
those leadership practices included in setting
direction account for the largest proportion of a
leaders impact. This set of practices is aimed
at helping ones colleagues develop shared
understandings about the organization and its
activities and goals that can under gird a sense
of purpose or vision. People are motivated by
goals which they find personally compelling, as
well as challenging but achievable. Having such
goals helps people make sense of their work and
enables them to find a sense of identity for
themselves within their work context. Often
cited as helping set directions are such specific
leadership practices as identifying and
articulating a vision, fostering the acceptance
of group goals and creating high performance
expectations. Monitoring organizational
performance and promoting effective communication
throughout the organization also assist in the
development of shared organizational purposes.
