Do we really know what we do in schools? Does each school know what it does? Not at a cursory level, but at a deep and meaningful level.
Do we communicate tirelessly and effectively with our internal folks and with all of our external constituencies? Does every stakeholder or group member genuinely understand and believe in what we are doing, why we are doing it, and how we are doing it?
Are we nurturing relationships – people – to turn groups into unified tribes?
