Clients of the GLOBAL School Consulting Group encouraged us several years ago to develop a full-service executive search service, tailored to their unique needs and profiles. That encouragement led to the development of GLOBAL School Searches, a niche search agency that connects leaders and schools worldwide.
Use your cell phone and take a picture of your children before you head out to the mall or the store on shopping trips before school starts.
As a Consultant, I’m challenged to invest time and effort in projects through which I’ll have influence and impact schools and organizations that are positioned to, in turn, influence and impact students and their families and communities in positive and lasting ways. Recently I’ve read a few articles that have prompted me to recognize a framework that I’ve utilized without previously trying to articulate its components, that provides clarity and consistency in my thinking and for my counsel to consultants and school leaders about career and personal goals and aspirations. The framework has four components aligned with the Japanese psychological concept of “Ikigai.”1

A school’s Purpose is expressed through its Mission. I work with many schools founded by visionary entrepreneurs with an end in mind about which they are passionate – a difference they want to make in the lives of children and young people, in families, communities, countries, and even the world. Many times, the initial motivation was as singular as creating the school they envision as ideal for their children. I don’t recall interacting with any school founders who had the vision simply to start a school, build a business, or create a place to go to work. Rather, they all founded schools to make a difference at some level and in some way.
