In last week’s episode on Empowering Your School, one tactic I offered was Lead by Doing.
This tactic can also work for crafting changes in school culture. A leader’s action will instigate the first steps faster than a thousand well-worded precepts.
After you take the first step, it’s much easier to take the second step and for others to follow suit. And this is critical because culture change requires a tribe, not a hero.
A tribe is about action. People acting together. People taking steps together.
Systemic challenges require systemic steps. Words rarely are enough. Example is better than precept.
