Why Become a Peaceful School Board Leader?
Leadership style and effectiveness have a direct impact on fellow board members, community members, and the overall board mission. With poor or ineffective leadership in school initiatives, the community, the students, and school administrators all suffer. That’s why Peaceful Leadership is so crucial: To both improve community trust and relationships as well as to proactively prevent community or board conflict and the many risks associated with unhealthy conflict.
Core Principles of Peaceful Leadership
Peaceful Leadership is a leadership model that centers around three Primary Pillars and five Core Competencies. The three pillars are Trust, Psychological Safety, and Inclusion. These directly refer to humans’ basic psychological needs when acting as members of a system or organization. A Peaceful Leader’s role in fulfilling these needs is actualized through competency in five critical areas: Patience, Engagement, Appreciation, Curiosity, and Empowerment.
