Reflection & Discussion

A blueprint for positive change in our schools.

Build the essential traits of a positive school climate.

School climate is the feel of the school (the school’s attitude), the behaviors and points of view exhibited and experienced by students, teachers, and other stakeholders.

Create a culture infused with positivity.

School culture is the way things are done in the school (the personality of a school), the underlying norms and values that shape patterns of behavior, attitudes, and expectations between stakeholders in the school.

Produce better results and elevate levels of performance.

When we focus on wellbeing, belief systems, and meaningful change within our organizations, we begin to see increased results. Employees’ brains at positive create a ripple effect felt across the school.

Intentionally focus on positive mindsets.

We can choose to continue to feel powerless or we can begin to change mindsets to get extraordinary results within our organizations and with our employees and students. When everyone feels better, students and employees perform at high levels.
