For any meaningful, significant change to take place, we know leaders in k-12 and higher ed have to understand what people in their organization like, question, and wonder about in terms of their experiences. Once it’s uncovered, we have to roll up our sleeves alongside them to help define it in their context and see the potential in strategies they may not have previously considered. Finally, we have to accelerate best practices, develop a culture of innovation, and be relentless in terms of celebrating results. The great stuff of any turnaround is built on a foundation of winning the heart, challenging the status quo, and having the courage and conviction to expect and deliver more than others think is possible.
