30 Analysis Interpreting the We Lead – Whole Staff Survey results is a process, not an event. Critical analysis is important to develop actions to verify the findings of the survey. Comparisons between indicators (e.g., comparing empowerment questions to instructional leadership questions) are often instructive. Ongoing conversation among colleagues provides the best way to gain a deeper understanding of the data. Perceptions of the same data may differ. This is a healthy starting point for dialogue and growth. The purpose of this entire effort is to improve teaching and learning in the school.
