How do you build your school culture? Is it left to chance? As school leaders, we are so focused on strategy, curriculum and “putting out fires” that we rarely invest in the culture itself. Ignoring culture puts our school’s strategic performance at risk. We can replicate other school’s systems and strategies, but we can’t replicate culture. We must build our own.
This program is designed to help your school culture become a point of difference. You will learn how to intentionally align values, behaviours, norms and systems toward a central strategy where culture becomes a force to drive results. You will learn how to grasp the 7 Habits as a powerful tool for creating a great culture and model and reinforce the 7 Habits to create an operating system for effectiveness in your teams and school. You will also develop shared language for getting results. As every person learns to live the 7 Habits they will develop high levels of character and competence and ultimately, trust.
Who will benefit:
Principals, deputy principals, senior leadership teams, Managers of Corporate Services, School Board Members and Teachers.
