4 LEADING ON PURPOSE: USING THE LESSONS OF LEADERSHIP TO ACHIEVE RESULTS As an educational leader, you are contributing to one of the most exciting and challenging - periods in the history of Ontario s education system. The targets being set and achieved in Ontario have put our education system on a world stage as a centre of excellence. At the same time, effective leadership has emerged as one of the critical foundations needed to sustain and enhance system-wide improvement. This booklet was designed to introduce you to a powerful new set of leadership tools, developed by and for Ontario educators, that will help you grow and refine your leadership skills, and put advanced leadership concepts and techniques to work on a daily basis to meet your educational targets and achieve concrete results. 2

5 Navigating the leadership maze We all know that effective leadership is critical to the success of any organization, and we recognize leadership as one of our key professional responsibilities. But in the face of dozens of administrative tasks, day-to-day problems and issues, critical achievement targets, and demanding deadlines, leadership often remains an abstract concept - even for those in leadership positions. What is leadership? What does effective leadership look like? What role does leadership play in the education setting? And most importantly, in the midst of day-to-day pressures, how can leadership skills help us to do more with less, streamline and focus our efforts, and achieve our practical goals and targets? What the research says The answers to those questions can be found in a substantial and growing body of professional knowledge and research that demonstrates a direct and powerful link between good leadership and improved student achievement. In fact, leadership in the education setting is second only to teaching in its ability to drive student success and meet critical achievement targets. The research demonstrates that: Principals and vice-principals are critical to the development of excellent teaching, excellent schools and, ultimately, enhanced student achievement; Supervisory officers play an essential role by putting in place supportive system practices and procedures for school and system leaders, and provide critical system-wide leadership. Needed: a leadership roadmap If the key to reaching our achievement targets lies in building our own leadership practice, how can we put that knowledge into action? What core processes do we need to put into place in our day-to-day practice as leaders? What specialized skills and understanding will we need to develop? And how can we know with certainty that we have adopted the most effective leadership approach? That s the purpose behind Ontario s Leadership Framework. Based on more than three years of research by leading experts, and extensive consultation with educators across Ontario, the framework provides principals, vice-principals and supervisory officers with a clear leadership roadmap representing the best thinking - and experience - of successful leaders across Ontario and around the world. Did you know? Research shows that there is no documented case of a school successfully turning around its student achievement in the absence of talented school leadership. Important to understand! No two regions, school boards, or schools are exactly alike. Nor are their achievement targets or leadership challenges. Ontario s Leadership Framework has been designed to address the specific needs of both school and system leaders. As well, it lays out a flexible pathway to effective leadership that can be applied to a wide variety of leadership roles, and situations. At the same time, it provides a core vision of leadership - and a common leadership language - that will, for the first time in Ontario, enable the seamless alignment of leadership across the entire education system, and engender a powerful collaborative approach to leadership and professional learning. In the frameworks, you will discover the key practices of successful educational leaders, and how you can put them into action to achieve your goals. You will also discover the skills, knowledge and attitudes of effective leaders, and be exposed to a common leadership language to enable effective dialogue, professional learning, and collaboration. 3

6 7 key benefits for your leadership practice How can you benefit from applying Ontario s Leadership Framework to your own leadership practice? Following are just a few of the ways: Benefit #1: A common leadership language Use the framework to talk about effective leadership practice and to problem-solve with colleagues on specific issues. Share the leadership framework with your team in a professional learning community that includes the vice-principal, principal and supervisory officer to establish short and longer term leadership development and succession planning priorities. Benefit #2: A new set of problem solving tools Use the framework in real-life scenarios: for example, use it to support a School Effectiveness Framework planning process, to assist principals in developing their growth plans, to launch a Student Success Team, or to respond to the specific needs of your students, teachers, parents and community. Use the framework to guide collective thinking and discussion about the issues your school is facing in a collaborative, positive way. Benefit #3: A platform for team-building and staff engagement Use the framework to build a shared vision about leadership and to encourage all staff to see themselves as leaders with a role to play in school and student success. Use the common language of the leadership framework in your discussions with staff about future directions for the school. Benefit #4: A shared context for leadership development Integrate the language of the leadership framework into the development and implementation of professional learning linked to school and system improvement. Use the leadership framework to identify which leader practices and competencies are in place, which are needed, and to develop an action plan for addressing professional learning priorities system-wide, in a community of schools, or at the individual school level. Benefit #5: A roadmap for sustainable leadership Think about how the leadership framework integrates with your board s existing policies and practices. Reflect the leadership framework in human resources programs and board policies designed to attract promising candidates to leadership roles, including programs such as new leader induction, mentoring and coaching, and succession planning to build strong, sustainable leadership teams. Benefit #6: A guide for enhanced professional learning Use the framework to facilitate effective professional dialogue between mentors and mentees and provide an opportunity for mutual learning. For system leaders, the leadership framework can be used as a touchstone to identify where you and your team should focus your professional learning priorities system-wide, in a community of schools, or at the individual school level. Benefit #7: A powerful self-reflection tool Use the framework to reflect on your own leadership. The leadership framework provides the language for a leader to say: These are the practices I need to enact through these skills, this knowledge and these attitudes, to make this particular initiative a success by ensuring that all parents, students, staff and the board understand our common vision, believe in what we are doing, and are confident that our approach is in the best interests of all the students. 4

7 GETTING STARTED: UNDERSTANDING ONTARIO S LEADERSHIP FRAMEWORK Leadership is second only to teaching in its impact on student outcomes 1. Principals and vice-principals play an essential role as school leaders to achieve this impact. Supervisory officers, in turn, play an essential role by putting in place supportive system practices and procedures for school and system leaders, and provide critical system-wide leadership. The ministry made a commitment to a number of initiatives intended to develop, support and sustain the highest quality leadership possible in schools and boards across the province. To ensure a consistent and effective approach to implementing these initiatives, Ontario s Leadership Framework was developed, and evolved to include a framework for principals and vice-principals and a framework for supervisory officers. 5

8 Purposes of the Leadership Framework The framework is designed to: Inspire a shared vision of leadership in schools and boards Promote a common language that fosters an understanding of leadership and what it means to be a school and system leader Identify the practices and competencies that describe effective leadership Guide the design and implementation of professional learning and development for school and system leaders. Organization of the Framework The framework is made up of two parts: Part One Leader Practices and Competencies Part Two System Practices and Procedures Important to know! The framework is not intended as a job description for the leader, nor as a checklist against which to assess performance. Rather, it provides a framework for growth, which is sufficiently detailed to describe good leadership, but broad enough to be applicable in the various contexts in which school and system leaders function throughout their careers. Part One Leader Practices and Competencies Leader practices are the actions, behaviours and functions found through research and professional experience to have a positive impact on student achievement. Leader competencies are the skills, knowledge and attitudes of effective school or system leaders. Leader practices and competencies are organized into five domains, in no particular order: setting directions, building relationships and developing people, developing the organization, leading the instructional program, and securing accountability. Each domain is then described through the practices, skills, knowledge and attitudes relevant to the domain. Part Two System Practices and Procedures System practices and procedures, which support successful school leadership, are organized into six domains, in no particular order: school and school board improvement, fostering a culture of professionalism, leadership development, administrative structures, parent and community supports, and succession planning. Each domain is then described through indicators relevant to the domain. The Leadership Self-Review Tool 2 provides a set of materials leaders can use to assess the extent to which system practices and procedures provide the structures and supports principals and vice-principals need to be successful school leaders. How the Framework was developed The leadership framework for principals and vice-principals and the leadership framework for supervisory officers complement each other to the extent that successful leaders draw on the same fundamental repertoire of leadership practices. The leadership framework for supervisory officers is tailored to address the complexity of supervisory officer roles as reflected in legislation and in the wide-ranging academic and administrative settings within which they provide leadership. Contextual factors that should be taken into account when reviewing the framework include the research foundations, the Ontario perspective, the evolving focus of school leaders, and the range in roles and responsibilities of supervisory officers in the Ontario context. 6

9 Research Foundations There is currently a large and evolving body of professional knowledge about effective leadership. The frameworks rely on this research to define leadership practice as a collection of patterned actions that draw on a set of competencies comprised of skills, knowledge and attitudes 3. The core leadership practices delineated in the frameworks are those that have been found to have the greatest impact on student outcomes 4. These broad categories of leadership practices are the basis for the articulation of more finely detailed practices, informed by professional experience, in four of the five domains of the frameworks: setting directions, building relationships and developing people, developing the organization, and leading the instructional program 5. The fifth domain, securing accountability, was developed to specifically address the accountability function of school and system leaders in all the domains, as practised in the Ontario context. Ontario s Leadership Framework Leader Practices and Competencies System Practices and Procedures The Ontario Context Successful school and system leadership is responsive to the diverse nature of Ontario s communities. The practices and competencies in the frameworks describe leadership broadly in a way that is intended to be inclusive of the diversity found in schools and communities across the province. Their application will be shaped and informed by the community context. For example, in French language schools and school boards, the application of the practices and competencies will take into consideration the implementation of the Politique d aménagement linguistique (PAL) already underway in these boards. In another example, leadership in Catholic schools and school boards will be carried out in the context of the board s articulation of Catholic faith perspectives. The demographic and contextual diversity in Ontario schools together with the province s commitment to high levels of student achievement have heightened the importance of school and system leaders as instructional leaders 6 who support the diverse needs of all students through their commitment to equity in student outcome. As instructional leaders, principals and supervisory officers embed direct involvement in instruction in their daily work through team work with all staff focused on improved school and classroom practices. As leaders who are committed to equity of outcome, they help to ensure inclusive and instructionally effective learning environments that increase the likelihood that all students will be successful learners. School and system leaders carry out these specific aspects of their role using a growth-oriented and collaborative approach across all the domains of the frameworks. 7

10 Insight: Technical & Adaptive Challenges Problems that we can solve through the knowledge of experts or senior authorities are technical challenges. The problems may be complex, such as a broken arm or a broken carburetor, but experts know exactly how to fix them. In contrast, the problems that require leadership are those that the experts cannot solve. We call these adaptive challenges. The solutions lie not in technical answers, but rather in people themselves. The surgeon can fix your son s broken arm, but she cannot prevent your son from rollerblading without elbow pads. Technical problems reside in the head; solving them requires an appeal to the mind, to logic and to the intellect. Adaptive challenges lie in the stomach and the heart. To solve them, we must change people s values, beliefs, habits, ways of working, or ways of life. Most problems do not come cleanly bundled as technical or adaptive. Heifitz, R.& Linsky, M. (2004, April). When leadership spells danger. Educational Leadership, The leadership framework for supervisory officers additionally takes into account the diverse functions and duties of system leaders: those with direct school accountability will apply leadership practices and competencies differently from those whose main focus is on district administration related to human resources or business. Practices and competencies evolve as leaders move through various career stages, specialized assignments, and unique educational environments. School and system leaders expand and strengthen their repertoire of practices, skills, knowledge and attitudes over time, provided they have opportunities to grow and are supported by school boards that are committed to leadership development. Moving forward: an evolving process The frameworks are working drafts which continue to evolve as a result of continued research in Ontario and international jurisdictions and through consultation with a cross section of stakeholders. Individual school and system leaders can provide feedback on the framework to the ministry or to the Institute for Education Leadership through their associations. 1 Leithwood, K., Seashore Louis, K., Anderson, S., & Wahlstrom, K.

11 FROM PURPOSE TO PRACTICE: THE LEADERSHIP FRAMEWORK FOR SCHOOL & SYSTEM LEADERS The leadership framework has been tailored to the roles and responsibilities of school leaders - principals and vice-principals - and supervisory officers. This framework describes the practices that research has shown to have a positive impact on student achievement, and the skills, knowledge and attitudes associated with each. In addition, it describes the system practices and procedures that support effective leadership. The charts on the following pages provide a convenient at-a-glance view of the leadership framework for principals and vice-principals and for supervisory officers in Ontario s publicly funded school boards. 9

16 Leadership Framework Part 2: System Practices and Procedures Understanding the framework The leadership framework consists of two parts: Part 1: Leader Practices and Competencies, which have been developed for principals and vice-principals, and for supervisory officers, are displayed on separate pages. Part 2: System Practices and Procedures is displayed on this page, and is common to principals and vice-principals and supervisory officers. The Leadership Self-Review Tool The Leadership Self-Review Tool (LSRT) was developed by the Institute for Education Leadership to help school boards assess the support they offer their school leaders. It is designed to enable boards to plan implementation of the LSRT in their own districts. It includes recommendations for effective use of the tool, a survey, and a gap analysis scoring sheet, as well as reviews of the research on leadership and student achievement and reports on the piloting of the LSRT in five school boards. Boards have the flexibility to determine how they will use the tool and can tailor aspects of the survey to their own context. You can learn more about the LSRT at: School and School Board Improvement The commitment the board demonstrates to raising student achievement and closing student achievement gaps, to treating people ethically, and to empowering the whole board. Indicators: The board provides support for building a common vision and mission for the school. All members of the school system (e.g., trustees, leaders, staff, school council members) work together to take responsibility for the learning of all students. The board recognizes the importance of professional learning communities and communities of practice as ways of supporting school improvement. The board supports capacity-building as the route to improved student achievement. The board exhibits a culture that supports school-based innovation within the board s shared vision. The board provides financial resources to support school improvement planning. Fostering a Culture of Professionalism The procedures that the board uses to ensure that it has positive working relationships with its school leaders, so that principals feel that they are respected and trusted leaders within the system and that their input is sought and considered. Indicators: The board has policies and processes in place that enhance positive working relationships. The board supports the development of a positive and supportive school climate in its schools. The board recognizes excellence at all levels of the organization. Flexible structures at all levels of the system communicate a culture of respect. 14

17 Leadership Development The approaches and activities that the board has in place to provide the necessary training and opportunities for principals to build their capacity to be visionary instructional leaders and managers of a changing culture in their schools. Indicators: The board s leadership development model is based on a definition and a shared understanding of effective leadership that is consistent with evidence of best practice.
