This is hitting home for us right now. At the end of an academic year, there is always stress and tension. And when there is reorganization on top of the normal crunch, it creates an atmosphere in which it is hard for employees to function. We are ten days from the end of the academic year, and roughly 1/4 of the staff does not know which building in the district they will be at next school year. Number 7 and number 10 on this list seem to fit pretty well.

I continue to be perplexed by the approach that we can't tell our staff anything until the last minute. When you take on that way of thinking, you undermine your staff in numerous ways. More than being elitist or arrogant, you create a fearful, uncertain work environment and, perhaps more importantly, send a message to your employees that they can not be trusted or handle information in a competent manner.

Does Galt consult with school districts? =)
