I chose this video: Norms for Leadership and Learning. With clear norms that have been designed by team members, members of groups are able to hold each other accountable when norms are not being met. Norms inspire active participation and offer "concrete tools to improve"..instruction and leadership. In order to for leadership teams to be of any consequence, members need to work together to set and accomplish clear goals in effective ways. This is a way to put an end to micro-management, spinning wheels and passing the buck. Collaboration and communication are an essential part of "making things happen", getting things done, and improving and inspiring all who are part of the school environment, students, teachers, and leaders.

The norms makes the group one, and work together rather than how he stated "us/them" but they all work together, and it is for the benefit of everyone involved.  The parents see that it is an unbiased framework and everyone is equal.  Thank you for sharing this video.

Leadership norms are helpful as they help us get things done and work towards student knowing what we are wanting them to learn. (see notes)

Collaboration is essential to student academic achievement. When a leadership team is able to communicate their ideas openly and with the understanding that we all perceive the world differently, it is then when the blending of minds can turn into a purposeful lesson.
