We help principals and district administrators get off “the hamster wheel of school improvement” and turn your school into a success story in 3 years or less with the people and resources you already have.
ARE ANY OF THESE TRUE FOR YOU?
How Do We Help BUILD A BETTER School?
Here’s exactly how we help you achieve your vision for your school in the next 3 years with the people and resources you already have:
Clarify Your Purpose
We help you create a bold vision for your school that includes 100% of your students. We also help you craft a clear mission and a set of non-negotiable core values that 100% of your entire staff supports to keep everyone engaged.
Grow Your People
We help you overcome will and skill issues that keep your teachers from being willing or able to pursue your school vision with passion. Then we help you put specific systems in place that help you grow the will and skill of your staff until everyone is committed.
Chart Your Pathway
There is no one-size-fits-all success path. We’ll help you determine your unique pathway to achieving your vision and help you let go of work that prevents you from achieving your goals. That way you can focus on the work that will achieve your vision.
Execute Your Plan
We’ll help you build a solid plan for achieving your vision including our 90-day plan to ensure that you stay on track and revisit your goals. Plus, we’ll show you how to manage distractions so that you can keep making progress even when “life” gets in the way.

Why Buildership® and Why Mindsteps®?
At Mindsteps®, we believe that school improvement isn’t just about making tiny, incremental gains each year. Real school improvement means achieving a measurable goal for 100% of your students in 3 years or less. While leadership training teaches you to write small goals like “in 3 years we will increase reading proficiency from 35% to 40%” we know that all that really means is that in 3 years you are planning to only fail 60% of your students instead of the 65% you are failing now. Buildership® helps you set and achieve meaningful goals. Thus, Buildership® teaches you to write goals like “in 3 years, 100% of our students will be reading at proficient or above” and then gives you the tools and the support you need to actually realize that vision in the next 3 years with the people and resources you currently have. If you’re ready to stop settling for incremental gains or running in place and never achieving your goals, we invite you to stop leading and start building.

you must improve teacher skill AND will."
