The why, how, and what of professional learning
Educators often focus on what they want to do to improve education. However, beginning with what they want to do may not be the best way to engage in professional learning or connect with colleagues in a professional learning community. Read how Lois Brown Easton uses Simon Sinek's Golden Circle to illustrate how education leaders can benefit from instilling a desire to change first, the why of change, before proceeding to the questions of how to make those changes and what is needed to implement them.
