Coherence

As an admin team we will be spending time with Michael Fullan next week. In preparation, we have been doing some reading, watching videos, and having discussions about his book, ‘Coherence’. I will be blogging more about the time we get to spend with him, but I thought I would put a few short thoughts down ahead of time. It’s also been a long time since I’ve written a blog, so I better get something down!

At my school, we’ve been doing quite a few things that align with Fullan’s ideas, especially around the collaborative cultures. We have put effort into deepening learning, especially around setting goals and capacity building. I would say the areas that we need to have more coherence around are Accountability, and turning I minds toward Clarity of Strategy.

We do have accountability, and need to be careful to ensure tha there is both external and internal accountability. We have come a long way in the last few years in understanding the importance of internal accountability as a driver for change. In my mind, the internal accountability ties into the individual passion and is necessary for powerful change to occur.

I look forward to deepening my understanding in this area as we spend time learning from Michael Fullan, and from each other.
