What’s the cost of getting it wrong?
Hiring new education leaders, or moving them to new districts or positions, can be a gamble. Incorrect priorities, strategic mismatches, and perceived bias in the process can create community mistrust that takes years to recover from.
When the stakes and costs are this high, it’s easy to make the ROI argument for ThoughtExchange.
Give new leaders a head start.
Imagine how much time could be saved if a principal, superintendent, or provost started their job already knowing what the community needs from its educators. And what if that information could be gathered in minutes, not months? That’s the power of ThoughtExchange. By building clarity around challenges and priorities, new leaders can engage with their communities faster, and demonstrate a real understanding of their needs.

“When new leaders join the company, we always recommend they do an Exchange with their group to gather information. Employees see it as a great way to get their thoughts on the table, and leaders gain key insights about issues they may never have known about. This sets leaders up to succeed in their new roles, right out of the gate.”
