Why We're Different

The conversation about the present workforce issues facing education is almost entirely about addressing the “shortage” in our schools. This naturally leads us to focus on short-term methods to recruit new teachers and leaders.

Sorely missing from so much of this conversation is how to first reduce burnout and retain the educators already in the profession.

By redefining burnout, we can measure and address it.

We often associate burnout as an individual's problem; something that can be addressed through meditation or yoga. It can't.

It can be addressed by understanding and improving day-to-day practices in our schools shown to have the most profound impact employee well-being.

Hope is the antidote to burnout.

We gain confidence when they can help envision a brighter future and experience positive changes along the way.

Science tells us that Hope can be activated as a strategy—with goals, measurement, and milestones.

Vitality is the presence of hope and the absence of burnout.

“Job satisfaction” isn’t wrong—it’s just not enough. We need to build workplace conditions that engage and support educators so they can do their best work.

By providing leadership teams with a roadmap, actionable data, relevant support and a network of peers, we help build and sustain great places to teach and lead so students have great places to learn.
