  • The squeaky wheel sec school changed so teachers moved not kidsCause and effect are not always closely linked in timeSystem is interrelated parts eg car, rugby team, alter one part it alters others eg body as different from a collectionWe don’t have enough information on how our students are achieving– collect more data – the data collected and the ability to use the data to make instructional decisions don’t match Balancing loop – trying to bring the system into stasis or equilibriumReinforcing loop = engine of growth (virtuous cycle) or of decline (vicious cycle)What problem am I most pleased with today? What might be the unintended consequences?How often do we come up with a rule without discussing what the real issue is that we are trying to deal with?
  • Systems archetypes – 12 causal loop diagrams that show stories of inter-related systems. Systems ThinkingGreatest leverage from understanding your organisationDeming – of you just have metrics for the parts the whole won’t changeMental models – the elephant – common language meaning the same thing
  • pop up unless something changes in the structureChange of behaviour – get clear around language – learning conversations
  • Teacher inquiry link – leader inquiry – what about meLeads self for learning – covey private victoryLadder of inferenceNeed to front up as a leader – discussion and dialogue – mistake difficult conversations as doing to rather than working withArt of Facilitation
  • Relational trustIndividuals – career stagesCulture and ethnicityMental modelsNeuroscience – everything we do has an effect on us – neurons that fire together wire togetherThinking preferences
  • High school use in preparation for staff meetings
  • Adaptive leadership rather than a technical problem
  • This is with big ideas – leaders do this naturally eg give a staff member info and leave them to think if they need more processing timeSmall school – close to the other teachers had to plan with this issue in mindDelegation planComunication planTimes – business plan or gantt chart
  • Co-constructionKnowing strengths – yours and othersKnowing when to hold it, fold itRELENTESS PRESSURE CONSISTENTLY APPLIED _ Guy ClaxtonThat’s why you can’t do it alone
