Maximize Your School's Organizational Health - Bring Your Leadership Team
September 17, 2018 (10:00-3:30 Central Time)
Location: The Covenant School, Nashville
Speakers: School Growth
How Healthy is Your School?
The answer to this question is critical because sustained organizational health is unquestionably one of the most powerful assets a school can develop. From extensive research we have the means to assess it, the tools to develop it, and an understanding of the disciplines required to cultivate it. Competitive advantage today isn’t won by the “best school.” A school that has the organizational health to purposefully reinvent itself to sustain enrollment and excellence will always win. Participants in this workshop will be guided through a preliminary assessment of school health and some best practices that will improve this key performance indicator.
The Laws of the Grapevine
Communication is a responsibility that cannot be delegated by school administrators and board leaders. Your communication habits are the single most important predictor of your success and directly impact the level trust and engagement throughout the campus. The Laws of the Grapevine is unique material that is designed to equip you to achieve stronger relationships and influence because great leaders are great communicators. Social media has accelerated the speed at which messages can be shared, but it can also undermine your relationships if you don't understand the vital importance of Sequence, Frequence, and Flow. Participants will learn techniques to master the grapevine and avoid messaging mayhem.
