The Daily Huddle


Are you wondering how to get everyone on your team operating from the same playbook?

If you’re a school owner, a very common scene we see often is the admin team or the directors are confused about what they’re supposed to be doing in their day. Many times I hear from owners that their directors are busy all day long, but they’re not doing specifically targeted activity that truly drives the school forward. In the end, no one ends their day feeling productive and none of the high-priority tasks get completed.

The Daily Huddle Strategy allows you to briefly meet with your team and see what everyone is owning for the day and where their priorities need to be. This helps the team to be focused, motivated and clear on exactly what you need from them.

Do you…

  • Need your team to meet deadlines?
  • Want to know how you can do this without micromanaging and chasing them down?
  • Want to know what questions you should ask to ensure accountability?

This episode is for you! 

In episode 12 of the Schools of Excellence Podcast, I am talking about another key strategy for the success of your school, the Daily Huddle. This technique is all about communicating clearly every single day while managing expectations and priorities within your team.

Finger-pointing, gossip, and resentment decrease as everyone get more and more in alignment and clear with what they are doing. We break down this method and how it can work for your school in this episode.
