Studer Group’s Education division eats its own cooking. We work with school system leaders on a score card and to cascade the goals from that score card across all levels of leadership in the organization. This week we finalized our division’s year-end (score card) goals and cascaded the goals to all members of our team. We work with school system leaders to help them progress monitor; we establish 90 day goals for each individual, scaffold the goals into 30 day goals, and progress monitor weekly through rounding. Oh, yes, we also discuss with leaders how to round on employees. What about…

Performance Conversations? Check!
Employee Engagement Surveys? Check!
Reward and recognition? Check!

One of our coaches, Dr. Robin Largue, was sharing how she encourages (actually more than that if you know her) leaders to celebrate their learning or their results when she’s working with them. In this share, Dr. Largue said she stood up around this table of 15 or so leaders and started clapping and saying “whoohooo” – after the shock wore off, the leaders celebrated with her in the same way. Now, almost a year later after this initial story, they don’t wait for Dr. Largue to celebrate their success. Why share this? It’s important to celebrate successes; this, we also do.

Below are three videos from this week’s Studer Group Institute, an opportunity for employees from across the company to learn from one another, review results and plan, and celebrate individual and company successes. Join us in celebrating Studer Group’s Education Division pillar award winners from the fourth quarter at 2013, Dr. Sarah Miller, Dr. Robin Largue, and Dr. Janet Pilcher.

Why eat our own cooking? It’s our connection to purpose – as we celebrate the successes of our colleagues and the example each sets of the values and standards of our company, we celebrate the meaningful work of our partners: We are devoted to working with school systems, leaders, and teachers to help them develop results-driven environments and to help them improve their performance and that of their students. We work with them so they may continue to realize their purpose,  feel worthwhile, and make a difference in the lives of young people.
