What are three things you learned from the video, that would improve student outcomes, and that you can implement tomorrow?
1 - Limit number of school initiatives – prioritize
2 - Each school/team should establish goals aligned with district goals
3 - Provide templates for goal setting for every team
4 – Teams should establish clear goals
5 - Monitor work toward a goal by requiring teams to create specific products related to the goal
6 - Celebrate progress. Plan for/seek/celebrate small wins
(Grenny, McMillan, Switzler, 2002)
List School Initiatives Here
Insert district goals from school plan
Provide templates for goal setting for every team. The templates should reinforce the premise that the team must focus on results rather than activities and must clarify how the achievement of the goal will be monitored and measured.
Make certain goals are team goals rather than individual goals. Team goals should be established by teams rather than for teams. Teams should be expected to create goals that align with school and district goals and to write goals that are consistent with specified parameters.
Monitor work toward a goal by requiring teams to create specific products ( norms, common assessments, collective analysis of results, improvement plans and so on) that are directly related to the goal.
Celebrate progress. Plan for, seek out, and celebrate small wins.
