High functioning teams can solve complex problems at much deeper levels than can individuals working alone, or typical teams in schools. In this workshop, you will learn about the latest research on high-functioning teams and what distinguishes them from most school or district teams. Participants will also learn about how to run effective meetings that people want to attend and produces results.
In the morning, Dr. Ash will discuss what distinguishes their extraordinary teams from all other teams. He will focus on the five characteristics of dysfunctional teams, based on the work of Patrick Lencioni (trust, willingness to engage in conflict, commitment, mutual accountability, and attention to results). Participants will have the opportunity to discuss the skills of their own team members and ways to improve their effectiveness. Exercises are designed to help participants develop their skills and avoid behaviors that reduce team effectiveness.
In the afternoon, Dr. Ash will discuss ways that teachers, department heads and principals can design meetings that are engaging, efficient, and results-oriented.Meetings are potentially the most important venue where adult and organizational learning can take place in schools. In this workshop you will discover ways to improve your PLC/Department/school meetings so people want to attend and more work is accomplished.
