Transforming Education: Leadership Lessons
Collective Leader Efficacy with Peter DeWitt
When teams believe they have the ability to make a difference, exciting things can happen in school. How can leaders help build this collective efficacy? Global speaker, leadership coach, author, Education Week column writer, and former teacher and principal, Peter DeWitt joins the podcast. From his vast work in schools, he offers research-based wisdom on school leadership, including the "Six Influences That Matter Most". He explains three steps to raising self-efficacy, and the value in defining the evidence of impact and student engagement. He also outlines starter steps for effective instructional leadership. We talk about reframing our mindset on Covid-19 “learning loss” and using what we learned during the pandemic to drive real action for equity.
