 QUOTE OF THE WEEK:

Educators across the Counter Top of Service & Job Satisfaction

May 12, 2014

Fall seven times, stand up eight.
-Japanese proverb

Tapping broadly into educators’ intrinsic motivation…

“An integral part of the leadership role is guiding educators’ to build opportunities for enrichment and personal achievement.  Here are some questions you can ask educators to help them become reflective practitioners and take ownership of their job satisfaction and professional growth:

  • What is the most fulfilling part of your job?
  • What talents, skills, special competencies, and unique contributions do you bring to the the learner?
  • Do you have an opportunity every day to do what you do best?
  • What keeps you from being as effective as you would like to be in your position?
  • If you had the power to change anything about your job, what would you change?”
