Participatory Partnership 8: Build on Success

Participatory Partnership Tip 8: Build on Success- This tip is courtesy of John Kotter and Kotter’s Change Method. Too often, we don’t build on success. We move on to “the next thing.” But celebrating success is a key to imprint practice. At The College of William and Mary, whenever a student successfully defends their dissertation, they ring a bell of announcement and celebration. Figure out a way to ring the digital bell and give high fives for successful achievement.
