We've Moved Our Own Cheese!

I shared this with the team during our induction. 

The Key Messages:
  • Change happens, they keep moving the "cheese".
  • Anticipate Change: Smell the "cheese" often so you know when it is getting old.
  • Adapt to change quickly. The quicker you let go of old cheese the sooner you can enjoy the new cheese.
  • Enjoy and savour the adventure and enjoy the new cheese.
Over morning tea, I asked some of the team what they would do if they were not afraid? They reminded me that they weren't afraid and that we have all put our hands up for this. We decided that when you change what you believe, you change what you do.

There is a sense of pure adrenalin running when you are working with a team of people who have all put their hands up to change the way they work as educators. The climate of possibility in our place is endless and exciting!
