Walk With Purpose
As the Head of School, my morning duty is to greet students. Every day, one parent drops his son off at the curb, often a bit late, and repeats, “Walk with purpose, son.” Throughout my first year as a Head of School, Aleasha has been a coach, educator, mentor, guide, confidant, and challenger while reminding me to ‘walk with purpose’.
Virtual Consulting: Breaking the Barriers of Distance
Wanting to get the best possible start with my new Senior Leadership Team, I decided to contract Aleasha Morris from Flo Consulting to facilitate our Admin retreat. The focus of the retreat was a combination of the CliftonStrengths work and the Patrick Lencioni book, The Advantage, which so effectively outlines the leadership norms I wanted to establish with my new Team. I was delighted to discover that Aleasha had prior experience in meshing those two approaches with Leadership Teams and provided genuinely helpful strategies and suggestions for me as a leader that enhanced my entry into a new school.
Being an educational leader can often be isolating, but coaching felt like having someone in my corner to help me process and develop action plans. Aleasha’s Coaching Process and questions always provoked meaningful reflection. She also provided thoughtful insights into my professional journey so that I was not alone.
Every month Aleasha and I worked virtually together to dig deep into what made me….me. She used my Strengths as the foundation to probe deeper and gently push me into becoming a stronger woman through open and honest conversations. Aleasha consistently showed a deep commitment to understanding me.
I have worked with Aleasha both on-site and through a completely virtual engagement that we designed for our Team while working in a remote part of the world. I can say that Aleasha shines through all of her interactions; her insightfulness, passion,and her ability to connect were experienced by us all. Simply put, she is outstanding.
From the initial consultation process to the implementation of a series of Strengths-based workshops and conversations, Aleasha brought highly valued knowledge, skills, and expertise to the Jeanne Sauvé Foundation’s Public Leadership Program. She helped our culturally diverse group of Fellows to understand the uniqueness of their Strengths in relation to their own personal, professional and global leadership endeavours.
I first met Aleasha when she presented at the Academy for International School Heads (AISH) summer seminar in 2015. Subsequently, as part of her work with another consulting firm, she came to the International School of Panama on several occasions to meet with our school Leadership Team. It was there that I was able to see how the combination of her experience in international education alongside her passion for Strengths based Team development could be transformative for school leaders.
The leadership team within the Americas organization had undergone a significant level of team member changes. We suffered from a lack of vision and struggled with the alignment of competing priorities. As a facilitator, Aleasha led us through a series of high performing Strengths based Team sessions where we established a clear strategy, objectives and ways of working together.
