What's the cost of a bad hire - on students, staff, and you? What's the impact of a great teacher on the lives of everyone they touch?
Make hiring a effective team sport that goes beyond resumes, references, and a gut feeling!
This workshop prepares you to really listen to what people are saying so you can hear the difference between what just sounds nice and what is truly excellent.
We combine self-paced online learning to shape foundational ideas and skills blended with live sessions to practice coding. This course has three parts:
- Phase 1 Online and Live - learn the themes and practice with interview questions
- Practice work - submit a practice interview for Phase 2
- Phase 2 Live Session: feedback on practice, more practice toward certification standards
You'll learn to use an online interview with theme-based, structured questions and criteria that focus your listening on excellence and clearly document your process.
Why do people invest in this workshop? They...
- Become a better listener, decision-maker, and coach.
- Unify their hiring process and team with researched, structured tools.
- Hire and coach teachers who bring out the talents of students and peers
- Focus more on being the instructional leader and less on putting out fires.
- Grow a culture of learning across the district.
