  • Be respectful of those speaking (no side bar conversations or doing other work)

Ground rules contd

Ground Rules (contd)

  • Different opinions are welcome.

  • Challenge ideas, not individual.

  • All participants share responsibility for the team’s process. Silence means agreement.

  • Disagree in private; unite in public. Irrespective of how individuals voted, once a decision has been agreed to everyone should support it and speak with one voice outside of the meeting.

  • Do what you say you’ll do. Individuals are accountable for following through on agreed actions and the group should hold each other mutually accountable.

  • Roles will be defined for the meeting

  • Keep all the discussions Private & decisions Public

-Nelson Mandela


School improvement summit

Repeat after me:

I am a leader…

I can’t help it...

I am made that way!

I am a leader…

I am highly opinionated…

I am wired that way!

I am a leader…

I love progress…

and I am wired that way!

I am a leader…

I hate the status quo…

and I am made that way!


School improvement summit

People make history and not

the other way around. In periods

where there is no leadership, society stands still. Progress occurs when courageous, skillful leaders seize the opportunity to change things for the better.

-Harry S Truman


School improvement summit

As leaders…

We see things that need to change.

We think we can do it better

than those who are in charge.

We can choose rebellion

or to just do our own thing!


School improvement summit

Leaders love progress

“The unique role of the leader is to take us to places we’ve never been before.”

Human progress is neither automatic nor inevitable...

Every step toward the goal of justice requires sacrifice, suffering, and struggle; the tireless exertions

and passionate concern of dedicated individuals.

-Martin Luther King Jr.


School improvement summit

  • Leaders love progress

  • Leaders hate the status quo

  • 3. Nothing strikes terror more than being stuck,

  • 4. Progress is always preceeded by change.

  • 5. Change is always preceeded by challenge.


School improvement summit

“Leaders must challenge the process because any system will unconsciously conspire to maintain the status quo and prevent change.”

Human progress is neither automatic nor inevitable...

Every step toward the goal of justice requires sacrifice,

suffering, and struggle; the tireless exertions and

passionate concern of dedicated individuals.

-Martin Luther King Jr.


School improvement summit

Success is not final, failure is not fatal: it is the courage to continue that counts.

-Winston Churchill


School improvement summit

Never underestimate the power of dreams and the influence of the human spirit. We are all the same in this notion: The potential for greatness lives within each of us.

-Wilma Rudolph


School improvement summit

You may encounter many defeats, but you must not be defeated. In fact, it may be necessary to encounter the defeats, so you can know who you are, what you can rise from, how you can still come out of it.

-Maya Angelou
