Tip of the Week

Get the right people on the bus:  We have all heard a million times, but it is worth saying again, “Get the right people on the bus”. It is a Hidden Jim Collins’ gem in his book “Good to Great”. He discusses how important it is to have the right people in your organization. So you really need to think about it, figure out who you need in what positions and then you need to act on it. It's one thing to just think about it, but you do need to act on it. So make sure that you are getting the right people on your bus.

Tip of the Week

Take pictures. Make sure you have somebody with you, whether it be a student or a staff member or somebody you can rely on to take pictures. It's so important because you need to capture those memories with the kids and you need to be able to have something in a file somewhere when it's time to do celebrations or for graduation that you could put together a video slideshow quickly.
