To remain inspired rather than dis-spirited - to draw from a deep, continuously renewed well of energy rather than suffer depletion - the practitioner must ground his or her life in some form of spiritual practice. (In the Spotlight section of this month's newsletter, Dr. Joe Schroeder, associate executive director of the Association of Wisconsin School Administrators (AWSA), shares his perspectives on how educators might keep renewing their reserves of spiritual energy.)
Dr. Joe Schroeder is clear: Developing sustainable, effective leadership involves nurturing not only one's mind and body, but one's spirit as well. In public education, Schroeder says, "we have a bias toward intellectual leadership. ... Yet the art of leadership is really about connecting with people's hearts and spirits" to transcend individual limitations and enhance capabilities. Former superintendent of the 4,800-student Muskego-Norway School District near Milwaukee, Schroeder is now associate executive director of the Association of Wisconsin School Administrators, which offers training and development for educational leaders. He's also the author of a blog - "Labor of Love" - that explores the "insights and resources I've tapped for trying to be a sustainable leader" and aims to support and strengthen other school administrators. Swimming in a sea of high pressure, drawing from a deeper well Becoming an effective, sustainable leader is tough work, Schroeder says - and getting harder all the time. Well-publicized debates over Common Core requirements, suggesting conflicting understanding of and expectations regarding higher levels of rigor, Schroeder says, have only turned up the heat on administrators. Providing more support for the hearts and spirits of educational leaders, Schroeder believes, may renew their energy and commitment. Unfortunately, discomfort with spiritual topics or the fear of creating or succumbing to pressure around specific belief systems have silenced the conversation and left many to manage the stresses alone, he says. With "Labor of Love," Schroeder invites educators to consider spiritual approaches to universal challenges: turning off the day's concerns in order to sleep well, making calm and confident decisions amid unhappiness and controversy, guiding and motivating staff members with diverse needs and talents, and accepting one's limited capacity to respond to every request of every stakeholder. While some administrators develop "mental tricks" to deal with such challenges, Schroeder goes deeper. The blog, he says, reminds people that they "aren't alone, there are common challenges of being a leader, and (tapping) resources going back a couple thousand years (can be rewarding)." In our culture's haste to sidestep the tricky language of personal faith, he adds, "we are negligent (in not providing) some exposure to some of those resources that could help educators maintain a healthy outlook and a sustaining sense of leadership." "If you're going to be an effective leader," Schroeder contends, "you need to tap somehow into that spiritual side of yourself. Otherwise you're really missing out on what really can make a sustainable leader." Performance Fact's impact Schroeder was the new superintendent at Muskego-Norway in 2008 when he hired Performance Fact, Inc. He had met Mutiu Fagbayi when both were working as educational consultants. They discovered commonality in their perspectives around educational leadership, including the notion that "the leader can't give anything to others that he or she doesn't first possess" internally, Schroeder says. At Muskego-Norway, "we had developed what we thought was a really strong strategic plan," Schroeder says. Because most plans fail in the implementation stage, he says, he knew an exceptional approach would be necessary to beat the odds. "I wanted someone with a good sense of tools and resources and experiences," Schroeder says, "I wanted all my school and district leaders and my department staff to start thinking the way Mutiu thinks" - that looking carefully at and shifting one's thoughts and beliefs can transform professional practices and generate outstanding student outcomes. Indeed, as Muskego-Norway leaders and staff embraced Performance Fact's Eye on the Goal™school improvement system, particularly the CPR (Continuous Progress Report) Card™, the district methodically worked toward the effectiveness that Schroeder was seeking. So successful was the implementation that Muskego-Norway in 2010 was named to the mastery level of the Wisconsin Forward Award, a program of organizational quality based on the national Baldrige Criteria for Performance Excellence. To date, Schroeder says, only three Wisconsin K-12 districts have attained that level of recognition. Schroeder encourages every educator to spend time reflecting on what her or she believes, and then drawing on those resources to nurture the heart and spirit. He also emphasizes the importance of respecting plurality and encouraging conversation, when possible, among those of different faiths and perspectives.
