It is regularly reported that some initiative on a campus failed because there was no “Buy-in.” I’ve been doing this a while, and I believe this concept of “buy-in” is overrated. As a school leader, here is what I believe in:
1. I believe in communication.
2. I believe in clear purpose and intent.
3. I believe in training.
4. I believe in support.
5. I believe in monitoring.
6. I believe in, “Do or Don’t Do.”
7. And I believe that sometimes, in spite of everything we do, things don’t go according to plan.
But, the lack of “buy-in” is the cop out excuse of the manager who was negligent somewhere in items 1 thru 5 and doesn’t want to be held accountable.
Think. Work. Achieve. Your turn…
