Pharos four key leadership practices
Culture is the only thing. The culture and dynamics of individual teams can vary widely across and organization. Leaders have to make sure the teams' culture is positive, collaborative, and focused on organizational goals.
We know that leaders don't know it all. We train our leaders to coach in their areas of expertise and then connect employees to other people, experiences, and resources to grow in the areas where the leader is not the expert.
We believe great leaders help build capacity in others. In the short term, it is more efficient to tell people what to do and manage the results, but this approach does not make people better. Building capacity empowers people to make decisions and have autonomy over their job.
As leaders, we serve our teachers, students, and parents. Leadership is not about ego or titles but rather about ensuring that others have the experiences needed to become better and kinder each day.
