Directional clarity allows a cruise ship to arrive in the correct destination after a thousand mile journey. Clarity in communication requires an understanding of the millers. Unclear expectations can create a lack of behavioral cohesion for leaders. Clarity of purpose is vital.
Clear values might be just as important.
Let’s be clear. Values aren’t all the same. Getting clear about values means we understand there are three main types of values:
- Core Values
- Base Values
- Vision Values
Understanding these helps you hire right. Getting clear on these allows intentional culture shaping.
Stay unclear on the values, and you can expect to hire the wrong people and accidentally shape the wrong culture.
Getting clear on values is about the people in your school. Who are we? What do we stand for? Who do we want to be? Core. Base. Vision. All values, but drastically different.
