When our team partners with a school district to tackle its toughest education leadership challenges, relationships are built at all levels of the organization. We may encounter superintendents and cabinet staff first, but we tend to find ourselves learning in many nooks and crannies of an organization over time, listening to content area specialists, IT staff, teachers and school leaders, and even attending parent nights or school board meetings.
Why? Personally, I love the exchange of ideas that takes place when we’re able to dive deep into conversations with education practitioners. Practically, the work is essential in building our understanding of the challenges that leaders face. Also, the priorities of different groups within a large system.
