Time for Change: Understanding and Effectively Addressing Staff Resistance to Change 1-Day Institute

Details

Since its inception in the 1960’s, the research on how schools effectively meet the academic needs of all students has flourished. Unfortunately, it is often the unwillingness on behalf of educators to implement research-based practices that limits the potential for schools to enhance learning for the students they serve. Why is resistance to change in schools by educators who care about students a strong reality? Might resistance to change not all come from the same origins? What if we as Transformational Leaders must provide our staff with a continuous cycle of creative ways in which we address the why, who, and how, stemming from rational forms of resistance. How might we address irrational resistance (colleagues who do not want to change regardless of the support provided)? Join Dr. Luis F. Cruz as he shares insight on resistance from his co-authored best-selling book with Dr. Anthony Muhammad: Time for Change: 4 Essential Skills for Transformational School and District Leaders. Discover the difference between rational and irrational forms of resistance and learn how to address both effectively.

Objectives and Outcomes:

  • Learning and embracing effective transformational leadership
  • Understanding rational and irrational forms of staff resistance
  • Initiating multiple forms of accountability
