Making Change Stick
Biggest Takeaways You Don't Want to Miss:
- It’s one thing to institute a change and see some initial success; it’s quite another thing to actually embed that change into your culture.
- If you are not deliberate about embedding change in your culture, you will constantly be on the “Improvement Hamster Wheel.”
- If you want to reap the long-term benefits of change, you need to have a systematic process for organizational learning, a “Control Plan,” and a “Recovery Plan.” These 3 things will help you manage change over the long-term.
Once you’ve done the work of creating successful change in your building, you’re not done yet. Now you must make that change stick over time.
Here’s where many schools fail and it’s why so many of us feel like we’re always lurching from one change to the next each year. Not only does it wear us out, but it overwhelms our staff, kills our morale, and makes others think that we don’t mean what we say.
But, there is a better way.
In fact, if you do this right, you can embed your change into the school culture so that people will actually forget the problems that prompted the change and think “this is the way we’ve always done things.” So, tune in today to discover the three things you must do if you want to make change stick #LikeABuilder.
