The Six Secrets of Change

The Six Secrets of ChangeLearning Forward Colorado's 14th Annual Conference featuring Michael Fullan was a huge success! Approximately 250 educators from around the state enjoyed a day of meaningful learning and networking with colleagues! Participants represented a wide variety of roles & responsibilities, and came from various areas around the state: Colorado Springs, Englewood, Adams 12, Adams 50, Cherry Creek, Denver, Douglas, Aurora, Jeffco, Littleton, Lewis-Palmer, Pueblo, Buena Vista, St. Vrain, Delores, FRDOCES, Tointon, Regis, The Principals' Center and private consultants. Fullan based the content for the day on his new book The Six Secrets of Change.

  1. Love your employees.
  2. Connect peers with purpose.
  3. Capacity building prevails.
  4. Learning is the work.
  5. Transparency rules.
  6. Systems learn.

Fullan's information was extremely valuable and his presentation style, engaging. Some representative participant comments from the evaluations include the following:

  • Capacity building and collaboration are critical elements in a healthy organization.
  • We must increase transparency in our work.
  • As a principal, I must practice having non-judgmental conversations that motivate teachers.
  • I loved how Fullan presented with video clips & sense-making connections. I will use this with my staff.
  • In addition to the content, I learned & will use several new processing strategies such as the "fireside chat".
  • Thank you, thank you for a most meaningful day of learning and networking.
  • Thank you ... it was great to see information presented in an effective professional development model.
  • Great information, great presentation! He's a funny guy & the messages were well-outlined and received.
  • We must continue to be hopeful in the face of complexity & adversity.
  • Successful organizations have a "culture of learning". Learning is the work of everyone.
