A lot of the school leaders and educators that I work with are new to concept of constant, incremental growth.
Quick side notes: 1) Slow and steady progress beats the “Lightning Bolt” nine times out of ten. 2) Lighting bolts happen once. If you get one, great! That gives slow and steady a head start.
Central to the slow and steady growth construct is measuring results for the purpose of honing process. Easy is theory, harder in practice. Because what trips everyone up is the problem of what to measure? In many cases the initial answer to the problem is, “who knows?”
In this situation, follow the advice of Jim Collins (Good to Great).
When you don’t know what to measure, make your best guess. Measuring something poorly or even measuring the wrong thing is first step in understanding how to measure it better in the future.
Think. Work. Achieve. Your turn…
