Our chat will focus on the idea that we can lead and make positive change from any position in our school systems. Leadership is not about a title, it is a way of thinking and acting.

  • JeffNelsonTLI Apr 21 @ 10:36 AM EDT
    A1: Model that very behavior. I know that the culture and climate of a school is exactly how the adults treat each other. Kids are drawn to adults who care about each other and are having fun! #LeadLAP
  • APKRentz Apr 21 @ 10:36 AM EDT
    A1: I think a good exercise we've done is have people share things about themselves. The more people know about each other, they care more and build a team. #LeadLAP

  • GrantTWood Apr 21 @ 10:36 AM EDT
    A1: What a great question. Creating an environment of respect and rapport, building community is not easy, especially on the administrative level, but respecting each other's opinions is a great start. #LeadLAP
  • MajaliseTolan Apr 21 @ 10:36 AM EDT
    A1: Teachers will talk with each other when it is a shared goal and there is mutual respect. If those two are lacking than "collaboration" is forced and lacks impact. #LeadLap

    Q1 is up... Great question from #viterbo636 students! #LeadLAP

  • JeremyDBond Apr 21 @ 10:36 AM EDT
    A1) I think it's ok to talk about the kind of culture you expect. You can't "mandate" a positive culture, but if you set the stage people have a better sense of what's considered positive. #LeadLAP

  • rokstar19 Apr 21 @ 10:37 AM EDT
    A1 you have to be proactive creating relationships with people. Start by asking them about their day and when they bring someone else up ask if they talked with them about it. #LeadLAP
  • DCulberhouse Apr 21 @ 10:37 AM EDT
    It begins with the leader and what they model…which then has a tendency to cascade across the organization, be that for the positive or negative. Creating environments of trust and psychological safety require constant attention and intentionality. #leadlap #viterbo636

    A1- As a leader, we need to model this in all interactions. Talking about people is small minded, while talking with people brings everyone closer together. #LeadLAP

  • MrWawczak Apr 21 @ 10:38 AM EDT
    A1: Modeling and creating opportunities is key. Also giving opportunities to get to know each other on a personal level is important. It helps personalize us all. #LeadLAP
  • JessicaCabeen Apr 21 @ 10:38 AM EDT
    A1.. model it. Stay away from negative thinking and gossip. What you model will grow within your school culture. #LeadLap

    In reply to @Joe_Sanfelippo, @Jenni_Donohoo
  • MrJahr2 Apr 21 @ 10:38 AM EDT
    A1: I think the way to keep people from talking about each other is transparency starting from the top down. Most of the "gossip" coming from an organization originates from the not knowing rather than disagreeing. Transparency leads to great discussion #LeadLAP #viterbo636

  • sandeeteach Apr 21 @ 10:38 AM EDT
    A1 Creating a culture where people talk WITH each other vs ABOUT each other begins with genuine caring, LISTENING, knowing people's stories/situations, and creating an environment where people are working in their strength zones. #LeadLAP
  • JoveStickel Apr 21 @ 10:38 AM EDT
    A1 Leaders need to model this behavior, build a culture of family and partnership, promote a culture of WE not me in all that we do #Leadlap
  • mtohlfs Apr 21 @ 10:38 AM EDT
    A1: Model honesty. Your building should have a "safe space" feel. A place where it is safe to throw the "skunks" on the table and air them out. #LeadLAP
  • tajohns512 Apr 21 @ 10:38 AM EDT
    You are so correct the culture of the school is based on how people treat each other. The relationships of the adults sets the tone for the school. #umedtech #edl577um #leadlap
    In reply to @JeffNelsonTLI
  • JoanJtracy Apr 21 @ 10:38 AM EDT
    A1. Model respectful disagreement. My heavens, we can all use that modeling. #leadlap
  • EDUcre8ive Apr 21 @ 10:39 AM EDT
    A1: set the example every day. Empathy should be actively practiced. Keep focus on common ground, common goals, all should understand theirs and others piecemeal contribution to the mission. Bottom line though: give chances for people to genuinely like each other #LeadLAP
  • principledlady Apr 21 @ 10:39 AM EDT
    A1: Keep the main thing the main thing. As leaders we must model focus our conversations through the lens of Mission and vision. Love your people #LeadLAP
  • EdLog411 Apr 21 @ 10:39 AM EDT

  • LegacyOfEd Apr 21 @ 10:39 AM EDT
    A1: Creating a culture where we talk WITH each other revolves around building those relationships. Small steps that build trust, being more open and vulnerable (a little bit at a time - take baby steps), & hanging out away from school - BBQs, happy hour, karaoke, etc. #leadlap

    A7: Think serving and supporting instead leading and directing. Keep your ego in check and be open to listening to your staff. If you think you are the smartest one in the room, then you need to find a new room. #LeadLAP

    A7: Always make the time to build and foster relationships with all staff. Remember to listen - really listen - even if the communication is hard to hear. Reflect often. Lift up those around you. Find joy in something every day. #leadlap

    A6: I switched roles from classroom teacher to district coordinator. I have had the amazing opportunities to create new programs and work with some of the most amazing people! I love the work I do and the people I have met along the way. #LeadLAP #Viterbo636
