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.
