The Secret to Getting Your Staff On Board

Biggest Takeaways You Don't Want to Miss:
  • When you’re rolling out a new initiative, you need to give your staff time to digest it. Remember, you’ve had weeks to think things through. They’ve literally had seconds. Give it time to sink in.
  • When you step outside of yourself and try to see things from your staff’s perspective, you can often get to the heart of their resistance and find a way to successfully address it.
  • If what you are doing doesn’t improve the will and skill of your teachers, why are you even doing it?
  • Usually staff resistance is NOT because they are unwilling to change, or lazy, or don’t care about kids: Usually their resistance has a legitimate cause. Take time to understand what it is and address it rather than just trying to railroad your agenda through.
  • When you force compliance, you create more work for you and your staff but very little results for students. 

It’s the new year and if you’re like most administrators, you’ve returned to school with a new energy and focus on achieving your school goals for the year.

So, it can be very frustrating to meet with staff resistance, especially when you have a true sense of urgency to do what’s right for students. 

But, there is a reason for this resistance and if you don’t understand it, you cannot address it.
