Collective Leader Efficacy: Strengthening Instructional Leadership Teams 

Collective leader efficacy (CLE) is a shared conviction among a school leadership team that they  can improve the learning environment for all students. Unfortunately, many school leadership  teams lack that conviction because they never took time to be intentional about their focus. In  this presentation, Peter DeWitt, E.D. provides the research, explains the drivers, and engages  participants in the cycle of inquiry that will help leadership teams develop collective leader  efficacy as a leadership team.  


Participant outcomes: 

  • Define collective leader efficacy (CLE) 
  • Develop an understanding of how leadership teams should function 
  • Define certain drivers necessary to develop collective leader efficacy as a team 
  • Engage in a cycle of inquiry where they can define a theory of action 
  • Develop a program logic model to help them plan actionable steps 


  • Dare to Disagree
  • beliefs about students, learning or school
  • Research focusing on collective leader efficacy 
  • Participants will commit to 3 drivers, 2 roles and 1 goal 
  • 8 drivers for instructional leadership team development 
  • Roles for team clarity 
  • The cycle of inquiry 
      • Develop a goal 
      • Explore how your school focuses on that goal already 
      • Inquire 
      • Plan for implementation
