I break down my consulting into three phases:
1) Relationship Building – In order for me to have success with a staff, I need to build relationships and trust. It’s important to have that strong foundation before we move into a change culture.
2) Inspiring ideas and sharing best practices – I have a wealth of ideas and resources at my disposal, but sometimes the best ideas can also be cultivated from within an organization. Encouraging staff to share what works best for them can often be more powerful than an outside idea and help them be a champion for change.
3) Implementation & feedback – Ultimately, we want to have our ideas and strategies put into practice in the classroom. We want staff to be open to new ideas as well as feedback for improvement.
