Assembling a Guiding Coalition

  • "The first step in putting together the kind of team that can direct a change effort is to find the right membership. Four key characteristics seem to be essential to effective guiding coalitions" (Kotter, 2012).

    • POSITION: Are enough key players on board (OEA, PSE, Community, Administrators) to make decisions and move forward?
    • EXPERTISE: Are the various points of view relevant to the task at hand adequately represented so that informed intelligent decisions will be made?
    • CREDIBILITY: Does the group have enough people with good reputations so that its pronouncements will be taken seriously by other stakeholders?
    • LEADERSHIP: Does the group include enough proven leaders to be able to drive the change process?

    Initial Priorities for the Guiding Coalition

    • Determine what we are going to do with the 6th grade students in 2018-19.
      • You will be able to provide your feedback to any member of the guiding coalition. 
      • You will also be able to read the Guiding Coalitions notes on the research, possible solutions, and the pros and cons of each tested prototype.
      • A decision will be communicated on or before May 4th.
