Flatline…

7 Jun

What would you want a doctor to do if this is what was showing on your monitor at the hospital?

Would you want the doctor to keep continuing what they were doing despite the results?

Would you want the doctors to change their current method because of the data on the monitor?

Would you want the doctors to hold themselves personally accountable for changing the results on the monitor?

These questions may sound absurd considering that we are talking about a life or death situation.  You would never want the doctor to behave according to the first set of questions.

The most effective principals would not exhibit these behaviours either.  Replace doctor(s) with principal(s) in each of the questions above.   The data would be around the goals of the organization that the principal is in charge of.  How many principals have you seen behaving according to the first set of questions?  Many organizations are exhibiting flat lines and yet the principal continues to act in the same manner that brought on the failure.

Principals must lead differently to spike a flat line in data.  How can you as a principal begin to bring your school back to life?

Perhaps a question for a NAPP korero?
