How do you create an empowering environment for educators while also holding them accountable for their responsibilities? For many leaders, finding the right balance can be one of the most challenging obstacles to creating a high-performance culture. On one hand, if you push accountability too much, people may feel demoralized. On the other hand, if you support people too much, they may become complacent and not grow.

What is the way out of this dilemma? There is no simple black or white solution. The good news is that finding that balance starts with a new perspective. CCL has spent decades helping leaders creatively apply new lenses to challenging dilemmas such as this.

In this webinar, we will share the best practices we’ve learned that can turn this predicament into a power source for teams and educational organizations.

You will discover:

  • The surprising truth about how easy it can be to strike a balance between support and accountability
  • That, regardless of your personal leadership preferences, you are well suited to effectively strike this balance
  • Why high performers benefit as much as, or more than, low performers from these practices
