Their [school leaders] primary aim is capacity building; however, building not only the knowledge and skill staff need to accomplish organizational goals but also the dispositions to persist in applying their knowledge and skills. Both collective and individual teacher efficacy are arguably the most critical of these dispositions and a third source of motivation in one widely regarded model of motivation. People are motivated by what they are good at. And opportunities to become more skillful at a valued task are the most powerful sources of efficacy. So building capacity leading to a sense of mastery is highly motivational, as well. Trusting relationships provide the foundation required by most people for engaging in the risks required to both learn and try out new practices. Dr. Ken Leithwood (2012)
