Why is it so important to develop a sense of common mission and values?

As Andy Hargreaves stated: “We must use collegiality not to level people down but to bring together their strength and creativity”.

This can be achieved by:

  • Using language to clarify and specify goals
  • Keeping open communication lines to defuse frustration
  • Communicating casually and congenially
  • Breaking down the barriers and unlocking potential
