Leading Change with Integrity
This workshop will focus on leading change with integrity which simplified mean leading with ethical morals and values. The quality of being honest and having strong moral principles.
Organizations deal with change on a day-to-day basis, as do people. The most successful people and organizations of the future are those that are capable of rapidly and effectively bringing about lasting system wide change. Leading change with integrity requires focus on organizational effectiveness and the effect on worker engagement.
Leading change with integrity requires four areas for discussion; 1) Identity, an organization’s purpose, 2) Authenticity, be the role model for the change you want to see; 3) Alignment, structures need to be aligned with the purpose and desired changes; 4) Accountability, are we measuring what really matter?
Ultimately change is about people. Its people who will execute desired changes and their engagement will drive success.

"Closing achievement gaps is a critical issue. The performance of Blacks is systematically different from that of other racial and ethnic groups. Decreasing gaps in student achievement means that we must increase the learning gains of Blacks."
- National Education Association
"The gap between teachers and students of color continues to grow. Over the past three years, the demographic divide between teachers and students of color has increased by 3 percentage points, and today, students of color make up almost half of the public school population. But teachers of color are just 18 percent of the teaching profession."
- Center for American Progress
"African-American students, particularly males, are far more likely to be suspended or expelled from school than their peers. Black students make up 18% of the students in the CRDC sample, but 35% of the students suspended once, and 39% of the students expelled."
