Feature Article: Dynamic Cultures

By Nancy Blade

A dynamic culture results from the work people do together. But how does an effective leader aim staff in a common direction yet not restrict how far they shoot to meet school goals?


Leading a school is not an individual sport. It takes a team with a principal who doesn’t just move teachers along, but jostles them up against one another to explore ideas and then moves them in a direction that syncs their goals. During the game, the principal coaches from the sidelines while teachers execute their plays. But in the locker room, the site administrator brings the team together to build momentum and, with laser focus, they study the playbook. Coaches of winning teams understand the value of this idea.


“I have learned over the years how to hold a team together. How to lift some men up, how to calm others down, until finally they’ve got one heartbeat, together, a team.”

—Bear Bryant, Former University

of Alabama football coach
