Abstract

Through recent and documented observations, interviews, and assessments, it has been determined that many educational institutions are in need of intervention in regards to four specific areas, particularly as related to its school leadership team and instructional staff. Proper interventions are needed for institutions to reach their fullest potential and ultimately provide students with the most effective and engaging school experience possible. There are specific challenges related to the ability to effectively make sound decisions, particularly when encountering stressful circumstances that often exist within a complex school environment. This lack of effective decision-making has contributed to shortcomings in the way in which school faculty and staff are working together. This guidebook will present educational institutions with pragmatic ways in which teams can work together to foster collaboration and promote synergy. It will also outline strategies whereby communication may be enhanced to improve student achievement and outcomes. Ultimately, leaders are concerned with the development of critical thinking in the classroom for educators, which will result in behavior issues being solved before administrative intervention. Furthermore, this can reduce or eliminate the pressure on administrators if the situations can be diffused on the classroom level. Therefore, this is the ultimate guide for success: Think, Collaborate, Decide,
