234: Why Your Mentorship Program isn’t Working

Do you want to become a standout leader? When you are a standout leader, you affect the teachers you lead and their students. Over time, this is going to make a big impact. In this episode I outline how to become a standout leader that is admirable, effective and top notch. Tune for actionable steps for taking your leadership to the next level!


  • Why is your mentorship not working? It's not flexible and it's not personalized.
  • Create physical space for mentorship to happen. Space on the calendar and a location to meet.
  • We need to support teachers where they are. There needs to be an onboarding process.
  •  Keep growing and accelerate the effectiveness of the staff as a whole.
  • Problem solve whatever obstacles your teachers are facing. Are the mentors still the right match?
  •  Space, support and strategies are the key features to continue evolving your mentorship program.
  • Teachers that are supported will stay around even if it's the worst year ever when they feel heard and are invested.
  •  When you feel like you have people on your team, you will work hard for them
