Here are some questions that I have been pondering lately in thinking about great organizations and administration.
What if we believed that everything that we had to make great schools was already within our organization and we just need to develop and share it?
What if schools always focused on the notion that we should all be “learners” as opposed to “students”?
What if we did not only promote “risk-taking” to our staff and students, but modelled it openly as administrators?
What if we hired people that did not look at teaching as a “career” but a “passion”?
What if we wanted everyone to pursue their dreams in our organization, not only our students?
What if we focused on connecting and learning both globally and locally?
What if people were always our first focus as opposed to “stuff”?
If these questions were a focus, what do you think schools would look like?
What are your “what if’s”?
