'The quality of an education system cannot exceed the quality of its teachers'
(McKinsey Report - How the World's Best Performing School Systems Come Out on Top).
A variation on a theme.....
'The quality of an organization cannot exceed the quality of its staff'
As leaders, if we can accept the above statements as true, what does this mean for us and our leadership? If the quality of the school/organization cannot exceed the quality of the staff who work in our schools/organizations, it is incumbent upon us a leaders to engage continuously in the development of each and every staff member.
