EDUCATION IS ROOTED IN CHANGE.
Leading is no different.
To be the change, we must embrace meaningful change. And to make meaning, we must seek and synthesize feedback. Grab the THREE simple questions that will have you diving deeply into an authentic assessment of your culture and climate, gauging effectiveness of initiatives and efforts, and taking a close and careful look at your stakeholder relationships.
LOOK. LISTEN. LEARN. LEAD.
That's how we create and sustain change.
This simple three-step framework is applicable to any effort and provides you with a ready-made action plan to ensure that the changes you’re making are, in fact, making change.
Leading change requires us to make incremental, real-time adjustments to ensure that our work supports the needs of our conditions. Mindfully monitoring experiments and efforts allows us opportunities to consider the roles that agency, choice, and dynamic practice play in sustainable change. When we feel overwhelmed, we can take that collective deep breath, analyze where we are, and figure out what we need to do next to create meaningful change.
