Does the school you lead, teach at or govern have goals?
I mean written down goals that are measured and evaluated each quarter, six months or a year to demonstrate the school’s progress towards its ultimate vision?
Don’t get me wrong, they are important aspects of your school - but they don’t inspire and do not result in significance.
If you don’t have written down, inspiring and celebrated goals, it is alright. You are not alone.
However, I think baseball great Yogi Berra was trying to tell us something when he said, "You've got to be careful when you don't know where you are going, you might not get there."
Now, one of the main problems in setting goals for schools is the principal or team writes a goal that does not lead to inspiration for all involved.
They set a goal that they know is attainable and it does not take any new...
