πŸ’¬ Is your School an X or Why School?

Replied to Is your School an X or Why School? by Richard Wells (EDUWELLS)
Students and schools focussed on why they exist develop stronger engagement in all activities and this results in making achievement in whatΒ we do much easier.
I really enjoyed Sinek’s book.

One of the interesting points that I found was that ‘why’ is not necessarily something that you just sit around and decide. It involves culture and therefore action. In some respect it reminds me of trust. You cannot necessarily create ‘trust’, instead you put in place the conditions for trust to prosper. I think that the challenge we face is creating the conditions for why to prosper. I think that your book goes some way to doing this. However, I imagine that it will always be based on context and involve idiosyncrasies.

  1. Great comments, Aaron. I was at a school yesterday where we talked much about early sign-posting of change so that people are given time to adjust thinking and give input. This was helping build a trusting and respectful culture at the school.

    Thanks again.
