Leading Effective Meetings, Teams, and Work Groups in Districts and Schools

Excerpt

In my experience as both a graduate education professor and a school district administrator, I have asked many teachers what they thought of school faculty meetings—and not once did I ever receive a favorable reply. Most of the time, my questions provoked emotions ranging from indifference to contempt; teachers perceive faculty meetings as wastes of time to be tolerated, and nothing more.

The good news is that educational leaders can make faculty meetings better; they don't have to continue facilitating meetings that accomplish little or nothing. Because running effective meetings is not taught in most school administrator preparation programs, I set out to write this book with the goals of synthesizing the available research and translating it into action steps that you can take. Using the information and activities contained in this section will change your meetings from dreaded events to major sources of learning, social support, and dialogue.
