Description: “A school can have all the best structures in place – flexible bell schedules with built-in collaboration time, interdisciplinary programs, standards-based rubrics, and feedback models – but without a sense of unity and trust among teachers, staff and leaders will struggle to bring to fruition the best ideas and scale them across the entire school or district. When a leader doesn’t invest time and energy in cultivating genuine relationships and trust, they’ll find that their good ideas fall on deaf ears.”
