Championship Cultures Through Restorative Practices

Updated: Jan 5, 2023

"How do you get teammates to cheer for each other from the bench when competing for playing time?"

Creating a championship culture is the foundation for creating championship teams.

High-performing schools, classrooms, and teams, have strong cultures. Simon Sinek says, “A culture is strong when people are with each other, for each other. A culture is weak when people work against each other, for themselves.” He also says, “People will hunker down and take care of themselves in a weak culture. In a strong culture, people will rise and care for each other.”

Restorative Practices is an emerging social science through which we build, sustain, and repair or restore relationships. It is also how we teach and train behavior.

Restorative Practices help leaders, teachers, and coaches establish strong cultures, teach teams how to hold people meaningfully accountable to each other, help develop self-awareness and social awareness, and shift the focus from behavior management to character development.

Restorative Practices help teachers, coaches, and leaders build and sustain strong cultures using 4 key tools: Circles, Community Agreements, De-Escalation, and Conflict Resolution.

Over the next few days, I'll be posting small articles on how to use certain aspects of these key tools with your teams, classrooms, and schools. I will link those articles here:
