Your Timeline is too short

Biggest Takeaways You Don't Want to Miss:
  • Most principals don’t make progress because every year they are trying something new. It’s like they’re repeating their first year of leadership every single year. 
  • Builders create a sense of urgency, not by panic or pressure. 
  • Playing the short game keeps you chasing quick wins and temporary gains. Builders play the long game and create sustainable results. 
  • One of the reasons our strategies don’t work is that we don’t give them enough time to work. In many cases you don’t need a new strategy. You need more time. 
  • Want to see more growth this school year? Give your team a chance to get good at one thing before you throw the next thing at them. 
Every new school year, the pressure is on. You feel like you’ve only got this ONE school year to make a difference. So you chase the quick wins, put an enormous amount of pressure on yourself and your teachers, and stay on the school improvement hamster wheel.

Builders don’t operate under that kind of pressure. 

Instead, Builders play the long game. They think in 3-year time horizons and as a result, accomplish more with significantly less stress. It’s time to get off the hamster wheel. Discover how you too can play the long game #LikeABuilder.
