MELBOURNE, FL, July 27, 2023 /24-7PressRelease/ -- While educational leaders are eager to make a difference, a common mistake is placing too many demands on faculty and staff during the initial stages of change.
ABA Technologies' KeyPress Publishing introduces Quick Wins! Using Behavior Science to Accelerate and Sustain School Improvement (2nd Edition), by bestselling authors and education consultants Dr. Paul Gavoni and Anika Costa , the must-have guidebook for educational leaders launching new initiatives within their institutions.
This publication is perfect for educators at any level, such as a school district official, principal, assistant principal, dean, guidance counselor, behavior analyst, teacher, or school consultant. Quick Wins! focuses on the impact of highly visible, low-effort achievements that deliver a valued outcome for all team members.
In this second edition of the book, Gavoni and Costa deliver a systematic approach grounded in organizational behavior science for achieving results and rapidly transforming schools that brings out the best in your students, faculty, staff, and yourself. In this updated edition, you will find:
-New and improved stories and expanded examples of quick wins
-A transition from traditional S.M.A.R.T. Goals to IMPACT Goals powered by behavioral science
-"Quick Takeaways" and "Sustain It" actions to extend the learning experience to actual improvements in schools and much more
Gavoni and Costa explain, "People want to see meaningful improvement—and they want to see it quickly. These improvements are easily identifiable, as they could have, and should have, been made long ago. A quick win does not have to be profound or have a long-term impact on your school. However, the best quick wins are long-lasting and leave a profound effect on faculty and staff interest and ability to make long-term impact changes happen."
One thing is certain: A quick win necessitates that people agree on the need for change, act together to make the change, and learn from the change. To make such change happen, quick wins require leadership.
School leaders are critical to staff performance and student achievement. By taking a Quick Wins approach and developing leadership and staff skills as described in this book, success is a matter of "when," not "if."
