Implementing new initiatives has the potential to empower staff and improve morale, or demoralize staff and damage campus culture. How can an instructional leadership team leverage the implementation of new initiatives to improve campus culture and staff morale? Our instructional leadership team, composed of administrators, instructional partners, and educational technologists, will share our approach to implementing new initiatives in a way that promotes a positive campus culture and improves staff morale while improving learning experiences for students and teachers. This approach combines a practical combination of management, leadership, and interpersonal skills along with collaboration. It also relies on four main components important in change management: (1) trusting individual professionalism, (2) honoring what individuals already do and building on those strengths, (3) long-term planning rooted in the idea of patience and persistence, and (4) differentiating implementation goals and timelines to meet the unique needs of each staff member. By applying these components consistently, instructional leadership teams can simultaneously implement district and campus initiatives while improving campus culture, staff morale, and learning experiences.
