2. Leadership and Leadership Density
43
Leadership is action, not position.
  • - Donald H. McGannon

44
Too many managers, not enough leaders. Managers
keep the current system in place and minimize
risk.
45
The fundamental task of a leader is to develop
confidence in advance of victory, in order to
attract the investments that make victory
possible.
-Rosabeth Moss Kanter
46
INTEGRATIVE THINKING
47
How Leaders Think
  • Not what they do but what produces their actions.
  • Ability to hold two opposing ideas in their heads
    at once.
  • You must fight thinking either/or.
  • Integrative thinkers dont mind messy problems.
    In fact, they welcome complexity, because thats
    where the best answers come from.

48
Leaders know how to wield the right change tools,
at the right time? The secret is to gauge how
strongly your people agree on 1. Where they
want to go? 2. How to get there?

SYMPTOMS OF DECLINE
67
Twelve Symptoms of a School in Decline
  • Symptom 1
  • Lack of leadership The principal is not
    providing focus and direction around addressing
    key priorities.

Daniel Duke, University of VA
68
Twelve Symptoms of a School in Decline
  • Symptom 2
  • More rules and harsher punishments
  • Schools in decline often experience more student
    behavior problems, sending them into a downward
    spiral of increasingly harsh disciplinary
    measures and loss of instructional time and
    trusting relationships.

Daniel Duke, University of VA
69
Twelve Symptoms of a School in Decline
  • Symptom 3
  • Lost Focus The School lacks clear academic
    priorities. If everything seems to be a priority
    time nothing is a priority. This leads to wasted
    resources.

Daniel Duke, University of VA
70
Twelve Symptoms of a School in Decline
  • Symptom 4
  • Poor Alignment Classroom instruction is not
    lined up with state standards and tests, and
    students are blindsided.

Daniel Duke, University of VA
71
Twelve Symptoms of a School in Decline
  • Symptom 5
  • Inadequate monitoring of progress at the
    student, classroom and site level.

Daniel Duke, University of VA
72
Twelve Symptoms of a School in Decline
  • Symptom 6
  • Ineffective staff development Schools that
    begin to decline are frequently the recipients of
    one-shot inservice programs and staff development.

Daniel Duke, University of VA
73
Twelve Symptoms of a School in Decline
  • Symptom 7
  • Lower staff expectations Teachers increasingly
    give up on struggling students and dont hold
    themselves to high standards of professional
    practice.

Daniel Duke, University of VA
74
Twelve Symptoms of a School in Decline
  • Symptom 8
  • Undifferentiated assistance Non-I.E.P.
    students who are having difficulty are assigned
    to generic supplementary programs with a lot of
    repetition and extended practice.

Daniel Duke, University of VA
75
Twelve Symptoms of a School in Decline
  • Symptom 9
  • Rigid daily schedule The inflexibility of the
    daily schedule prevents students from getting
    timely and targeted help.

Daniel Duke, University of VA
76
Twelve Symptoms of a School in Decline
  • Symptom 10
  • Hasty hiring It is tempting for principals in
    declining schools to approach the hiring process
    fatalistically.

Daniel Duke, University of VA
77
Twelve Symptoms of a School in Decline
  • Symptom 11
  • Increased class size Class sizes mushroom,
    making it difficult for even the best teachers to
    be productive.

Daniel Duke, University of VA
78
Twelve Symptoms of a School in Decline
  • Symptom 12
  • Overreliance on untrained helpers Programs to
    help struggling students are often staffed by
    volunteers, teacher aides, and unqualified
    personnel.

Daniel Duke, University of VA
79
ACTIONS FOR INDIVIDUALS AND SCHOOLS
80
Four Guidelines for Action as an Individual
  • Act and talk as if you were in control and
    project confidence
  • Take credit and some blame
  • Talk about the future
  • Be specific about the few things that matter and
    keep repeating them
  • -Pfeffer Sutton 2006

81
Four Recommendations for the School
  • Signal the need for dramatic change with strong
    leadership
  • Maintain a consistent focus on improving
    instruction
  • Engineer some quick wins early
  • Build a committed staff

82
ADVICE
83
HOPE is not a PLAN
84
Is my desire for success to improve my system or
classroom strong enough to prompt me to change my
thinking?
85
The things we fear most in organizations,
fluctuations, disturbances, imbalances are the
primary sources of innovation.
  • - Meg Wheatley
