Could your staff meetings use a zap of energy? Do you want more participation and less reluctance when you gather your team together? Good teachers know that fun, emotion, meaningful connections, and high expectations drive learning and committed attention to a task. This sourcebook overflows with strategies, activities, and resources designed to bring these all-important qualities into the faculty meeting.

Teacher leaders will discover the keys to improved collaboration, teamwork, and productivity - and new tools to improve group processes. By modeling best practice at staff meetings, leaders also give their teachers new engagement tools that they can put directly to use in their classrooms. The authors demonstrate how to reduce the "chore" factor of meetings by:

* Lightening the atmosphere with creative approaches

* Starting with purpose-focused theme music and other energizers

* Building relationships within the team that transform the school culture

* Overcoming barriers to productivity

* Rewarding and appreciating staff in innovative ways

* Closing the meeting with a bang--and a plan

As the energy from your staff meetings ripples through the school, every teacher and classroom will experience the motivation and focus that you create!

"Sheila and John Eller have used their experiences in educational institutions to frame their suggestions in ways that are easy to relate to our own uses. One of the strengths of the book is the manner in which the authors examine each meeting aspect, described how problems might hamper the effectiveness of a meeting and them provide numerous approaches to positively impact a meeting. The book is filled with fun and engaging activities. It is very easy to read and see the applicability of the content. I recommend this book to anyone who plans meetings." -- NACADA Journal, Spring 2007
"The helpful suggestions and creative approaches will help school administrators create an atmosphere conducive to productive relationships that can transform a school's culture." -- Curriculum Connections, Fall 2006
