In this episode, I talk with Becky Gerdes and Ryan Siegle about their book Six Steps Toward Teacher Retention and a Long-Lasting Legacy. We focus mainly on their Six Steps to Maximize Your Leadership Impact and Improve Teacher Retention:
Step One: Lead Authentically
Step Two: Build Teacher Self-Efficacy
Step Three: Foster Collective Efficacy Among Your Staff
Step Four: Cultivate a Culture of Trust
Step Five: Listen to Your Staff with Empathy
Step Six: Unite Around a Shared Vision
This was a great conversation with a ton of practical steps that school leaders can use to help build an environment where teachers want to stay, which we all know translates into better experiences for students.
