Why are some Educators more effective than others?

We discovered the characteristics of the highest rated Teachers, Staff, Coaches, and other school employees

From years of research and planning with schools across North America, we collected personnel performance data to understand what makes the best educator--including every employee of PK-12 schools. In this course we share the key intelligences that are common to those who contribute at the highest level to the mission, culture, and goals. 

The resources in this course are designed to be used in self-study or as part of group professional development.
