Do you know the strengths of your staff? The time is now to create cognitively diverse strength teams. When staff know themselves and are known, valued and engaged by their strengths, you are well on your way to a thriving campus. Creating a culture of care begins with caring for those in our care. School leaders in Poway Unified activate both online and offline activities in Thrively to promote positive staff identity. It’s no longer enough to have students reflect and share, “What I wish my teacher knew.” It’s time to have our teaching staff share, “What I wish my administrators knew . . .”

The next time you jump into a conversation, lead with what is strong versus wrong. Thrively is here to help.
