IMPORTANT TERMS

Collaborative Leadership: A 2011 study by the National Association of Secondary School Principals defines collaborative leadership as a hallmark of successful schools. Such leadership overtly values the voices of staff, students, parents and community members. Other research supports the NASSP’s conclusion. Healthy schools where educators, parents, community members and students embrace change and view learning as a joyful endeavor are places where leaders have purposefully built and maintained extraordinary relationships.

BACKGROUND SCENARIO

The administrative team at Meadow Ridge Elementary wants to implement a new approach for math instruction at their school. This project will involve quite a bit of training and will require significant changes in teachers’ practice. Even though the instructional approach is well-grounded in the research base, the team knows that this will be a challenge, as there will be resistance to this change from the school faculty.

The admin team first meets together to identify key teachers at the school who are both (a) influential with their peers, and (b) likely to support the project. The team then meets with them to bring them on board as advocates.

Next, the admin team identifies teachers who will likely be initially resistant to change, but who will probably come around once they’ve seen evidence of success (data) from peers and students. They make a plan to roll out the initiative to the school, leveraging the support of advocate teachers and focusing on those teachers who are likely to change practice with enough evidence.

EVIDENCE OPTIONS

Video: Submit a 4-6 minute video in which you discuss and describe your implementation of the Courageous Principals techniques for leading and enabling change as a part of your leadership. Focus on a specific challenge, addressing the following:
1. What was my challenge?
2. How did I use Stakeholder Mapping (resistance and influence) to identify and build support in my school?
3. How did I use the Action Planning Framework to address my challenge?
4. How was the plan implemented? What was the result?


Survey Results: Design and administer a survey about your practices for leading and enabling change to your school faculty and staff. Submit the survey items/questions, the data/results, and an explanation of the data/results. Your explanation should demonstrate how you have successfully and consistently implemented the Courageous Principals leading and enabling change techniques. Be sure to address the following topics in your survey and explanation:
1. Specific challenges that have been addressed as a result of your leadership practices
2. Your strategic communication with stakeholders
3. Your practices for planning and implementation to address challenges.


Testimonial: Submit a video or written testimonial from a colleague who has participated in the Courageous Principals training. This testimonial should verify and describe how you have successfully and consistently implemented the Courageous Principals leading and enabling change techniques in your practice as a leader. The testimonial should address the following:
1. What are some specific challenges you have addressed using these techniques?
2. How have you used Stakeholder Mapping (resistance and influence) to identify and build support in your school?
3. How have you used the Action Planning Framework to address a challenge?
4. How was the plan implemented? What was the result?
