Schools are about improving outcomes for learners.

This is non negotiable as

our core function

It is our moral imperative

They require management.

They are sometimes dissonant

and fearful.…

or you are a confounder.

  • Signal to others our allegiance to and trust in decisions and organisational direction
  • Constructively respond, Is this practice good? Is this practice appropriate for us? Does it fit with our ideology and ambitions. Collins & Porras.
  • Listen laterally to naysayers I hear your voice, tell me your concern, we can look at the evidence, (a fact formed story)
  • Gear change Professionally move forward…cut, remove and stitch. Feedback with clarity
  • ‘White Time’ Give your team time to think freely, laterally and unconfined. Then, ask the questions. Trust their intentions.
  • Behave Authentically and congruently, all the time!

Relational trust is the glue

of the school house.

  • Relational trust with a strong moral purpose produces very tough cultures that work diligently inside and outside the school to get results. Bryk & Schneider (2002)

Where are you ? Show yourself!

The difference between the two destinations is the difference between living inside out True North, and outside in, Magnetic North.

  • Magnetic North (external values, pressures and people compromise and modify your core values and those of your school.)
