I took notes the entire time I was reading the manuscript and as I’m sure was the plan on the purpose of the book, it challenges the reader to think, apply and learn! The 5 Rules are the foundation of building relationships and a healthy culture. Our company is built on these foundations!
We launched the 5 Rules while I was in the New Orleans market and it’s still going strong today by uniting the teams and giving everyone a common language of expected behaviors to keep the culture rock solid.
For what it is worth, we also have a very high rate of teacher retention. I think the rules contributed to that by settling the campus and attracting like-minded people. They are versatile and very easy to communicate and apply.
Generally, the campus is doing very well. The complications that came with covid, and the significant damage done to the area and our building by Ida were serious obstacles, but we have still made substantial progress. I am very proud of the students and teachers.
