in a PLC

A

critical step in the PLC journey is celebrating. Celebration is more than just having fun; it is a means of communicating what is important. When celebrations continually remind people of the purpose and priorities of their organizations, members are more likely to embrace the purpose and work toward agreed-on priorities. Regular public recognition of specific collaborative efforts, accomplished tasks, achieved goals, team learning, continuous improvement, and support for student learning reminds staff of the collective commitment to create a PLC. The word recognize comes from the Latin “to know again.” Recognition provides opportunities to say, “Let us all be reminded and let us all know again what is important, what we value, and what we are committed to do. Now let’s all pay tribute to someone in the organization who is living that commitment.” Most schools and districts, however, will face a significant challenge as they attempt to integrate meaningful celebration into their cultures. The excessively egalitarian culture of schools makes it difficult to publicly recognize either individuals or teams. In most schools and districts, generic praise (“You are the best darn faculty in the state!”) or private praise (“I want to send you a personal note of commendation”) are acceptable—public recognition is not. Generic and private praise are ineffective

in communicating priorities because neither conveys to the members at large what specific actions and commitments are valued, and therefore, neither is effective in shaping behavior or beliefs. As Peter Drucker (1992) advises, “Changing habits and behavior requires changing recognition and rewards . . . [because] people in organizations tend to act in response to being recognized and rewarded” (p. 195). Tom Peters (1987) puts it this way: “Well-constructed recognition settings provide the single most important opportunity to parade and reinforce the

When celebrations continually remind people of the purpose and priorities of their organizations, members are more likely to embrace the purpose and work toward agreed-on priorities. specific kinds of new behaviors one hopes others will emulate” (p. 307). We offer the following four suggestions to those who face the challenge of incorporating celebration into the culture of their school or district. (Cont.)
