Futures Task Force

May 23, 2023

  • Used the Tuckman Model of Team Development to recognize that we are in the “Forming Stage” which means we are getting to know each other, beginning to recognize our common goal, and should expect low productivity in this stage
  • Discussed qualities of High Performing Teams to create a common list
  • Introduced the Ladder of Inference (Chris Argyris) to use as our framework to make thinking visible and inquire into someone else's thinking before drawing a conclusion too quickly.

We are reading: Our Iceberg is Melting by John Kotter - Penguins discover a devastating problem threatening their home.  A fable of resistance to change and heroic action by the penguin colony.
*I have 10 extra copies available if you would like to sign one out.*

Next: School visits to ESS and MCS to hear and see maintenance issues from Building Principal, Elementary Maintenance Supervisor and Operations Director

Next meeting is May 31.
