Three common misconceptions that thwart school improvement

Three common misconceptions that thwart school improvement | Educational Leadership | Scoop.it

Gino Bondi's insight:

Great post re: change management and the uncovering of what actually causes teachers to change their practices. Arnett 'nails it' when he writes, "School leaders, especially, need accurate notions of how the world works if they want their school improvement efforts to succeed."

Leading Free Talent | GlocalThinking | Educational Leadership | Scoop.it
Gino Bondi's insight:

Shorter relationship cycles with employees means redefining how we manage ever changing talent flows. As jobs open up within the educational sector, the following truth becomes even more evident: Talent is no longer retained: they are seduced, they are enticed, they are offered attractive conditions so talent desires to develop their potential in the projects we offer them.

 

Our role? the last four bullets in this article nail it but I love this line: create projects of value "to which talent decides to dedicate its capacities and resources at that moment."

Here are highlights from his conversation with ATD President Tony Bingham. Follow your North Star

Feedback managers never give (but should)

Feedback managers never give (but should) | Educational Leadership | Scoop.it
Effective feedback is part art, part science. Telling employees that they need to do X instead of Y is the science part. That’s easy. But feedback that addresses personality and character traits is hard feedback to give; that’s the art.

Stop Wasting Money on Team Building

There are better ways to learn collaboration.
Gino Bondi's insight:

As we explore discussions around embedding collaboration time in our schools, this great post by Carlos Valdes-Dapena about the power of collaboration is a good one to read. According to the authors, quality collaboration does not begin with relationships and trust; it starts with a focus on individual motivation.

 

There is a focus on two questions that are asked in order to make collaboration clear, specific, and compelling — to make collaboration something to be achieved:

 

  1. Why is collaboration essential to achieving a respective group's results?

 

  1. What work, which specific tasks, would require collaboration to deliver those results?

 

 The last paragraph captures Valdes-Dapena's thoughts:

 

Strong relationships and trust do matter to collaboration, but they are not the starting point. They are the outcomes of dedicated people striving together. Connecting collaboration to the motives of success-minded team members is what unlocks productive teamwork.

The 8 best questions to ask during a one-on-one meeting

lace one or two of these questions in your typical meeting agenda.
Gino Bondi's insight:

Some great questions here to add to my bi weekly meetings with school Principals. 

Two questions I particularly like at this time of year:

  • #4 and it's tie with the school planning process
  • #8 as it's the time of year when structures (like staffing a school) may not jive with vision and will ask for 'outside of the box' thinking.

Definitely will be drawing on this post.

Gino Bondi's insight:

Alan November suggests that education leaders need to define a new role for learners and then hire teachers who can help nurture those qualities. With that in mind, November proposes seven questions that he thinks should become standard in the interviewing and hiring process.

 

Great quote:

“What we need today, because there’s so much knowledge available to us all, what we need are teachers who are so inspiring that students go beyond the curriculum to seek out their own knowledge, to add value to the curriculum the teacher taught them."
