Motivating leaders to innovate

     Educational leaders have the opportunity to engage students for success. As an educational leader, one developed an intrinsic motivation that compressed commitment towards education. This connection brought a pathway to enhance innovation strategies for future generations. The educational leader always reflects and thinks about all the possible ways for a growth mindset to create the passion for learning gain and support teaching strategies. In the past, education became part of theoretical progress towards the quantity of accountability rather than quality for learning outcomes. Therefore, educational leaders must focus on their love for teaching to facilitate students’ learning gains for proactive results. 

Why motivate? 

     The task of becoming a teacher gained more than just a profession; but a lifelong memory that connects with many people, either positive or negative. It is when one should reflect upon the needs to serve and love what you do. Making innovation as part of education does not depend on, and is not hampered by, the policies or the curriculum; it depends on us (Couros, 2015). Even though many situations challenged the present situation, one should think inside the box (Couros, 2015). Then, educational leaders mastered their talent to communicate and collaborate with their team and find the school’s best approaches. Empowered by education through a growth mindset supported the school community and bridge opportunities for positive outcomes. The fantastic part of this pathway, gained when overcoming challenges through building relationships, sympathized, and connect with other educational leaders. Therefore, educational leaders built collaboration and connection that facilitated a growth mindset within the school community. 

How motivate?   

     The Educational leader with a growth mindset seeks education as a pathway to increase student talent for the future. Couros (2015) stated, there is always space to innovate in education. As twenty-first-century education flourishes into better ways to manage school implementation, student appreciates their learning process and gain positive outcomes. The main issue about the status quo on school focused on compliance rather than encouraging educators for better approaches through innovation. Eaude (2011) argues that improving children’s learning requires a model that encouraged teachers’ innovation and judgment.  Couros (2015), when we build on our strengths and daily successes-instead of focusing on failures-we learn more-Tom Rath. The educational leader needed to empower positive reactions from experiences, learn, and look for better success strategies. It is not difficult; it is based on the feeling and the self-motivation of doing it. Teachers are the ones who make the magic of learning coming into reality. I encourage you to think inside the box and look into the beauty of educating others for a better world through innovation.
