Initiatives and systems-alignment: Putting the pieces together

425

Published on

Too often initiatives feel like yet “another thing” to do. When done effectively, initiatives are connected and aligned. At this Administrator Retreat we were analyzing how district initiatives are interdependent and support our mission/vision. We described why we need to communicate and practice clarity and focus in our work. We developed a common understanding of “systems-thinking.” We “unpacked” each of the initiatives. We compared and contrasted elements of the initiatives. We connected initiatives to the mission/vision. We developed a common message around the initiatives. We recognized the role of a culture of collaboration in accomplishing our mission/vision. We considered leadership and staff professional development implications.
