Day 169 (of 185) You can’t just create the culture you’ve seen you want…can you?
It is said that Culture eats Strategy for breakfast.
You have to build from what your culture is
Many sports teams have borrowed from the New Zealand All-Blacks: http://www.superhumanperformance.org/blog/2015/11/1/allblacks
Then there are the cultures that bring in “a person” – such as sports teams bringing in a players coaching, much like when the Seahawks brought in Pete Carroll. But can one person set an entire tone?
Recently the news highlighted an: Individual High-5 Teacher – didn’t come because he wanted publicity, emerged because he was connecting with his classroom culture. Others may emulate it….some may even force it…..but if it isn’t a natural progression, the artificiality wears off. http://www.nbcnews.com/video/teacher-s-twist-on-a-high-five-has-students-smiling-867194947871
Sayings that I heard and like:
Good leadership needs good follower-ship
Always good thinkings when looking at what a learning community looks like, how it acts, and how it reacts.
