Focus on the Fundamentals to Improve
Changing the culture of an organization doesn’t happen overnight. However, when leaders focus on the fundamentals to build trust a positive culture can emerge. Today’s episode revisits an interview with Dr. Pat Greco, who shares how the School District of Menomonee Falls stayed 8 months ahead of other districts. Leaders communicated the measures that matter and decision rules to all teams to ensure every employee could own their work and do what is best for students.
This episode addresses questions, such as:
- What fundamentals can leaders have in place to help employees feel a sense of calm during chaos?
- How can continuous improvement be viewed as part of the work rather than an add-on to the work?
- Why do clear measures motivate people and teams?
