Too often, professional development programs fail to deliver consistent, concrete results. Presented in lecture format, useful tactics and great ideas fail to get implemented when teachers and staff return to the challenges of their daily work. While coaching has been shown to be a powerful developmental tool, the majority of coaching programs have also failed to deliver measurable results at any significant scale. We believe that the most powerful way to develop leadership capacity is not to teach leadership concepts but to have people learn leadership skills while working on a vital performance objective.
"Being part of this Breakthrough Results approach was empowering and made a big difference for our school. We need to use this same approach for every other area we need to look at – we’re talking about literacy, math, etc. This works."
Breakthrough Results is a powerful approach that gets measurable results while building leadership skills. The approach has been successfully used to raise attendance, increase graduation rates, improve reading and math achievement, and enhance facility and operations management. The Breakthrough Results approach combines focused goals, progress monitoring, rapid action cycles, performance coaching, and targeted professional development to empower teams, unleash creativity, build leadership capacity, and achieve measurable results.
