  • Hypocrisy in how we treat some students?

    This is primarily directed to educators and parents. Have you have ever made a diet or exercise plan? Did you ever “break your plan” after 2, 3, 5 days? Does that mean you weren’t sincere when you said it was important to exercise more or lose weight? When I ask the question in my Choosing ExcellenceTM workshops, everyone says they were sincere, but it was...

  • Deming’s Quality Principles

    W. Edwards Deming  (1900-1993) In 1947, Deming was involved in early planning for the 1951 Japanese Census. Dr. Deming was invited by General Douglas MacArthur (who grew so frustrated at being unable to complete so much as a phone call without the line going dead due to Japan’s shattered post-war economy) to be part of the rebuilding team in Japan.   While in Japan, people quickly realized...

  • Learners Instead of Students

    How, if in any way, would your classroom, school and/or district be different if the word “students” were replaced with the word “learners“? In The School for Quality Learning: Managing the School and Classroom the Deming Way (1993), Crawford, Bodine and Hoglund consistently referred to the learners in the school.  From a Choice Theory® perceptions point of view, it seems that the word would help....

    Go SLOW to Go Fast is a commonly stated approach to large and small implementation and change processes.  While the concept seems to make sense to many people, often it is used as an excuse to go so slowly that there is no real impact on the system.  It is the design and implementation of processes that determines the speed and effectiveness of change.

  • Using the Questioning Process At Home – Part 3 – Parenting

    These are questions that I wrote for a colleague who was dealing with a specific member of her family (by phone), but I believe they are helpful as a reference point for any situation. The questioning process, when used with family members, is a little different than in a counseling or teaching setting.   We, as family members, are their relatives, not their counselor.   Having said...

  • Using the Questioning Process at Home – Part 2 – Relationships

    The questioning process, when used with family members, is a little different than in a counseling or teaching setting.   We, as family members, are their relative, not their counselor.   Having said that, using the questioning process can at least plant seeds and help a family member look at their life a little differently.  Also, remember to ask the questions in a way that the family...
