All you need is...LOVE
“A new command I give you: Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another. By this everyone will know that you are my disciples, if you love one another.”
-John 13 34-35

THROUGH BUILDING RELATIONSHIPS
Providing support and demonstrating consideration for individual staff members
Catholic school leaders:• acknowledge and celebrate the accomplishments of individuals and teams (what does this look like?)
• consider staff members’ opinions when initiating actions that affect their work (what are these actions...are we aware?)
• build upon and respond to individual staff members’ unique needs and expertise (how do we do this?)
• treat individuals and groups among staff equitably (what does inequity look like?)
Buliding Relationships WHILE Being An Instructional Leader
Modelling the school’s values and practices
Catholic school leaders:
• are highly visible in their schools (possible obstacles?)
• have frequent, meaningful interactions with teachers, students and parents in order to
further the school goals
• demonstrate the importance of continuous learning through visible engagement in
their own professional learning (how do we do this?)
• exemplify, through their actions, the school’s core values and its desired practices (do we know what these are?)
