Developing Shared Beliefs
research points to the fact that
adults have to come together first, before students can rally
Why create shared beliefs?
In a rampant toxic culture, there is no coherent set of common values that drive an organization. Everyone is driven by personal beliefs and feelings.
At the very outset, one of the foundational works we recommend to any school or organization that desires a better outcomes, is to come together and create a set of Shared Beliefs.
Creating shared beliefs
the ignite process: working through a culture portal
First, it starts with defining your school's existing culture from staff and student voice.
Shared Beliefs are created by all adults who have influence over the culture of a building.
Using your Culture Inventory Report as an anchor, everyone becomes apart of the creation process to develop powerful solutions customized to the needs and wants of your building.
Shared Beliefs, the foundation to growth and success
Your Shared Beliefs are the first foundational document in the series that will help you to create a unified, consistent culture.
It's from shared beliefs, that you create consistent actions and practices to get the results you want. This is called creating a Compact for Excellence.
