CDOS: How to Coach Beginning and Advanced Educational Staff to their Best Levels of Performance
Staff development is not, of course, limited to specific days on the calendar. In the superb, intentional school, it is an ongoing process in which there is support for what Michael calls the CDOS premise: that at the end of the year, each member of staff at all levels will be able to say that they are better at their jobs than they were at the year’s start. This goal of continuing growth is one which we expect for our students in every grade—this presentation explains in detail how administrators, department heads, and other team leaders can help staff to expect it of themselves. It teaches exactly what to say and do when observing and speaking with staff, including the building of a positive partnership for improvement, cutting through resistance, increasing trust and credibility, boosting accountability, motivating participation and practice, and more.
