Stakeholder Management

~45 minutes

This simulation involves a school leader at a struggling high school, seeking to build relationships and improve academic achievement while working with multiple stakeholder groups. Engaging with teachers and administrators, you’ll have the opportunity to confront behaviors that get in the way of academic achievement.

Key characters include two administrators held over from previous principal, alumna/actively involved parent, experienced teacher struggling to engage students, young and enthusiastic teacher

Trade-offs to consider:

  • When met with recalcitrant AP’s, continue insisting on best practices, while risking ever gaining their buy-in
  • Upon discovering a practice among teachers that does not help students, insist on a policy change, while risking ever gaining their buy-in
