Guiding Coalitions

Guiding Coalition Overview

At Carlisle High School, our staff takes great pride in creating a safe learning environment that allows all students to learn at high levels.  In order to create systems across our school that involve and maintain high levels of learning along with researched based strategies that are collective commitments of successful schools.

  • That coalition—a powerful, enthusiastic team of volunteers from across an organization—is a crucial tool for leaders looking to put new strategies into effect and transform their organizations. And deciding who should take part in the guiding coalition is essential.
  • Introversion and Extroversion: The guiding coalition is a forum for members to contribute distinctive ideas based on their own experiences.
  • Unconventional Thinking: Creative and innovative people spark new ideas in other people. Loading your team with free thinkers can help to generate the sort of novel ideas necessary for success in today’s rapidly changing business world.
