How to Build True Staff Alignment Part 2

Biggest Takeaways You Don't Want to Miss:

  • If YOU are the reason your teachers do the right thing, then the only person truly accountable is YOU.
  • Chasing, checking, and correcting teachers is not only exhausting, it’s totally unnecessary when you have true staff alignment.
  • You cannot create a fully aligned staff unless each individual teacher has fully aligned their practice to your school vision, mission, and core values.
  • Leaders try to get their teachers aligned to them. Builders focus on getting their teachers aligned with something bigger than them -- the school vision, mission, and core values. 
  • A healthy school culture keeps people meaningfully engaged in doing the right work, the right way, for the right reasons.
In order to build true staff alignment, you need 4 things -- ownership, empowerment, alignment, and engagement. In the last episode (243) we discussed how to build true teacher ownership so that teachers take responsibility for the results in their classrooms and how you can build true empowerment so that you set teachers up to be successful in their classrooms.

In this episode, you'll discover how to ensure that every single teacher's work is in alignment with your vision, mission, and core values so that teachers are truly accountable for their work and student results. You'll also discover how to keep your staff meaningfully engaged in the work over time by building a healthy school culture.
