What they are saying about School Leader 360…

Participating in the School Leader 360 process far exceeded my expectations. The feedback was the most detailed and helpful survey data that I’ve ever received. I highly recommend the product to any leader who is looking to make strategic and relevant professional improvements.

Remo Roncone, Principal Troy High School Troy, Michigan

As a District leader I have spent most of my time thinking about the evaluation of others at the expense of my own professional reflection. School Leader 360 has provided me with authentic feedback from constituents across the District as well as specific examples to target my goals in order to inform my growth and development as a leader.

Rich Machesky Ed.D., Superintendent Troy School District

As a new superintendent, I was so thankful to have the opportunity to work with Larry on this project. His on-line School Leader 360 feedback tool was extremely valuable as it focused on areas that were meaningful to both me and to people across the district. The survey itself was efficient and easy-to-use which was appreciated by all of those who participated. The reporting of results was also extremely beneficial to me and to our board of education. I look forward to using this tool in the future and I am thankful for Larry’s efforts on behalf of our district.

Matt Outlaw, Superintendent Brandon Community Schools Ortonville, Michigan

I didn’t realize the full value of self-reflection until I participated in the School Leader 360 assessment. While it was important to hear what my families, colleagues and supervisors thought about me as an administrator, it was most valuable to stop and see where I have been, where I currently am, and where I would like to be in the future. The feedback was powerful, kind and valid. The anonymity created a “fresh set of eyes” and the conversation with Mr. Lobert helped to put comments into perspective and learn and grow from these truths.

Jo Kwasny, Principal Boulan Park Middle School Troy School District Troy, Michigan

We used the School Leader 360 tool with 22 building and central office administrators in our district, including the Superintendent of Schools. The confidential process, feedback and reports were universally regarded as extremely helpful by all participants.

Jordan Harris, Assistant Superintendent for Employee Services Troy Community Schools Troy, Michigan

The School Leader 360 was a confidential process that allowed me to see how all of the stakeholders I serve view my performance and abilities in my role as an elementary principal. The feedback was useful to set personal goals and was an affirmation in areas where I’m positively impacting my school’s learning community. I highly recommend the process for personal growth hand reflection.

When you hear the term “Human Resources” you immediately equate it with Larry Lobert. He is a strategic thinker who understands the importance of building positive relationships with all stakeholders. Equally important, he is genuinely committed to educational excellence by creating a culture that emphasizes quality, continuous improvement, team-work and high performance of all staff.

No one understands human resource issues better than Larry Lobert! His strengths include recruitment, induction, performance appraisal, employee relations, and interest- based bargaining. He is an excellent leader and a very productive team member. He is the kind of person who always “adds value” to organizations and to one on one interactions.
