Measures that Matter: Will Our Daily Actions Keep Students Learning?
The way leaders approach challenges and opportunities impacts their teams attitude and energy.
– Amabile & Kramer
Do parents and caregivers have confidence in our actions? Are students and staff confident in our support? In this roundtable, Dr. Pat Greco and Nannette Johnston shared tools and resources on daily actions to improve.
In the discussion groups, Pat and Nannette challenged education leaders to think about immediate goals during reentry and the measures that matter:
- Identify one area you really want to focus on in the next 30 days.
- What is your current process for seeking feedback and monitoring outcomes?
- What is one shift you think you will need to make? How will you communicate the change to staff, parents, students, other stakeholders?
The most important part of connecting is following up. Leaders follow up by sharing meaningful recognitions with team members and communicating action taken to provide employees with what they need or what they have offered as ideas for improvement.
Connect with Parents and Gather Input | Committing to connecting with parents to gain input sets the stage for creating a more engaged work environment. It's the teacher's responsibility to create a learning environment where people choose to engage in their work and with others.
