A high performance culture is having 100% engagement and growth in your learners, educators, and leaders. High performance cultures encourage growth over comfort and giving critical feedback instead of settling for “good enough.” e2L grows high performance cultures in public schools to sustain local visions of learning for students.
Our culture is who we are; our collective thoughts, actions, core values, and beliefs reflect the robust culture we have created at engage2learn. We have seven key cultural tenets that drive our behaviors and define our success. They speak to who we are as an organization and empower us to cultivate a high performance culture not only at engage2learn, but for our partners as well.
Our mission inspires each of us to hustle every day and compels us to strategically sacrifice to ensure we have the intended impact before it is too late. We must be agile and focused because we are the point of the spear.
“Our mission is to ensure that all learners thrive in public neighborhood schools
and that those schools are the choice of parents and students in America.”
When mission matters most, there is no room for ego. Our calling gives us courage greater than ourselves in the face of obstacles and opposition. We customize to local context while never compromising our values.
“We maintain a humble posture while guiding leaders to ensure we are truly serving each of them effectively as they take courageous steps.”
Simplify is our mantra; sustainability is our goal. We challenge ourselves with constraints that benefit our partners and increase our impact while fueling our creativity. We know that innovation is more about implementation and iteration than ideation so we walk more than we talk.
"In an institution of tradition, seeking change is not always comfortable, and e2L is no stranger to that.”
We embrace challenges as opportunities to learn. We crave feedback because it makes us better. We measure what we value, and if it isn’t documented, it didn’t happen. We are so convicted about our processes that we use them on ourselves.
“When a goal is achieved, it is not the organization’s culture to rest on its laurels and simply sit back and coast. We are continually asking, 'What are the next steps?'"
Empathy is at the heart of all of our processes. We design solutions and experiences so that people can use their gifts. Everything we do is on purpose.
“There is no system or process or project too small. Instead, every system, process and project is given the utmost attention to be carefully crafted and refined.”
True collaboration requires vulnerability, eradicates competition, and elevates each person to best and highest use. Great minds think differently; as a team we discover the best solutions that we all own.
“There is a common saying that 'great minds think alike', but we believe that
'great minds think differently'.”
Humbled by the opportunity we have to make a difference, we do not take for granted that our partners are trusting us to help make their vision a reality. We vow to always be real, to be who we are. Therefore, we trust our own intentions, actions, conscience, e2L processes, and each other.
"When we work to serve kids whose needs are evolving more rapidly than ever, we can’t always see what the future will hold. At engage2learn, we continually iterate so we can meet those needs, and since it happens so quickly–sometimes quicker than we can wrap our heads around it–we have to trust."
