In today's high-demand education culture, district and school initiatives, mandates, and other constraints that have taken a toll on morale and culture. Still, there are two things you can control: attitude and actions. Culture defines who you are as an organization, and each person is responsible for creating the culture that leads to positive outcomes.
In this interactive session, Dwight Carter, author of Be GREAT: Five Principles to Improve School Culture From the Inside Out, will discuss five key principles that will challenge individuals to model the behaviors that create a positive school culture: grateful, relational, enthusiastic, authentic, and teachable.
Key topics include:
- Identifying the benefits of gratitude and how these benefits impact school culture
- Learning how to utilize signature strengths to improve relationships, increase engagement, and solve problems
- Understanding how authenticity creates a culture of trust and belonging
- and more G.R.E.A.T principles to improve your school culture
