Leadership is one of the cornerstones of the educator framework.
The WRU identifies a number of overarching competencies educators often exhibit.
As you seek to make an impact in your own educating, you might consider mastering some of the following skills:
- Reflective practice: Helping systems to function with a culture of mindful and meaningful reflection by creating conditions that encourage thoughtful consideration among peers, administrators and other staff members.
- Personal effectiveness: Understanding your own personal strengths, leadership style and passions, and capitalizing on those attributes to support lifelong learning in others and yourself.
- Interpersonal effectiveness: Seeking opportunities to better support your colleagues and building critical relationships to promote action that’s based on a shared vision and is deeply rooted in serving the needs of others.
- Communication: Defining, differentiating and sharing carefully crafted messaging that can spur others to pursue positive change at all levels of the community game.
- Continuing learning: Creating meaningful professional development goals and seeking learning opportunities to help you achieve them. Examples include pursuing additional higher education, attending conferences or policy forums and participating in research projects.
- Group processes: Open-mindedly engaging in working with others, skillfully managing group dynamics and guiding groups through challenges.
- Adult learning: Building an awareness of adult learning to better understand how to impact colleagues and collaborate to enhance instructional growth.
- Technological facility: Incorporating emerging technology as a tool to communicate with diverse audiences, facilitate collaboration and offer learning activities that would otherwise be inaccessible.
