Union 2018 Admin Team - Share the Lead

To create change, leaders must clearly communicate all the components of change over an extended period of time. Change will not take place because of a single staff meeting, a one-and-done staff development, nor the launch of a single initiative: Change is a process.

Creating an Eco-System for Managing Change:

1. Spotlight on Change

2. Team Talk

3. Reach Just Beyond

4. Everything Open

5. Time is Everything

6. Celebrate the Mission

7. Happy People make Joyful Learners

Today, let's combine Everything Open and Celebrating the Mission.

Resources & Assets for the Sample Site

The landing page can show the school calendar or have quick resources. The sidebar is the key to organize staff communications and transparency.

Create a weekly news letter that is on the site. This allows for updates and error correction even once it is published! The Weekly becomes the reason to come to the site, and while staff are there, they may check out other resources as well.

Place Professional Development Archives, Staff Meeting Running Agendas, Leadership Team Notes, all on one sidebar. This creates transparency in an organization where nobody can say they didn't know something was happening.
