39 Step 1: Develop a sense of urgency Helping others see the need for change and the importance of acting immediately. Leaders who understand the importance of a sense of urgency are good at taking the pulse of their company and differentiating between complacency, false urgency and true urgency.

40 2. Craft a Purposeful Community There is a shared sense of purpose & trust among the members of my leadership team. We accomplish goals that matter and we have strong, well-articulated reasons for doing the work we do.

41 3. Create an Effective Vision We have conveyed a clear picture of our vision and it appeals to the long- term interests of teachers and students. Everyone understands precisely what our vision is, and how we are going to achieve it. We are all moving in the same direction.

42 4. Communicate the New Vision The new vision is communicated to ALL stakeholders with clarity and passion. It is two-way and feedback is solicited. We have clear, simple, memorable, often repeated, consistent communication from multiple sources, modeled by leaders, and we are open to questions, challenges and debate.

43 5. Remove Roadblocks

44 6. Generate Short-Term Wins in a long-term master plan Visible improvements Plan and Create wins Recognize & reward people who make the wins possible.

45 7. Reinvigorate! We are using our increased credibility to change all systems, structures, and policies that don’t fit together and don’t fit the transformation vision. We hire, promote, and develop people who can implement the change vision. We reinvigorate the process with new projects, themes, etc.

46 8. Anchor New Approaches in the Culture The new style of operating is firmly grounded in our culture. People see the connection between the new actions and performance improvement. (This happens last, not first. New approaches usually sink into a culture only after it’s very clear that they work and are superior to old methods.)

47 "Perhaps here in America we don't give our kids an opportunity to flex their compensation muscle. We are afraid of failure, but it is through failure that students learn. Perhaps we should change our assessment system to allow students to make mistakes without the stigma of failure.” Malcolm Gladwell Climate District and School Transformation Division, North Carolina Department of Public Instruction
