Leadership For the Evolution of School Culture – Changing the Game

For leaders, the humility to admit and own mistakes and develop a plan to overcome them is essential to success. The best leaders are not driven by ego or personal agendas. They are simply focused on the mission and how best to accomplish it.
~ Jocko Willink & Leif Babin – Extreme Ownership

Dr. Clete Bulach discusses his considerable experience and personal evolution in school management as a teacher, principal, and school superintendent. Today his greatest consultation interest is the revision of school climate and school culture, and the essential downstream effect on student achievement. Related areas that impact environment and culture are leadership behaviors, teacher caring behaviors, bullying behaviors, “character-related” behaviors, and improved levels of openness and trust.

On the show notes here at CBJ/173, Dr. Bulach offers downloadable surveys below to collect data on specific student achievement related variables. In our CBJ interview, Dr. Bulach speaks with practical street wisdom from years of experience. If you’re interested in school improvements that can work in Anytown, you will appreciate his insights. His humility and knowledge set out new maps for ancient territories.

With focused attention on these details, kids can improve connections with their educational objectives.

Dr. Bulach’s Activities

  • He formed a consulting agency called The Professional Development and Assessment Center (PDAC).
  • The agency provides training to improve leadership skills in human relations, conflict management, and group management. See the link Leadership Development Seminars to read a description of these seminars.
  • Additionally, personnel from the agency serve as evaluation and research design consultants. School districts that want to develop data-driven school improvement plans that are further designed to improve the quality of instruction have found the services of the PDAC to be beneficial.
  • Bulach was the external evaluator for the character education grants (1999-2003) for the State of Georgia’s and West Virginia’s Departments of Education (2002-2006).
  • He collected “character data” on over 200 schools at the elementary, middle, and high school levels. On-site visits were made to every school district in the State of WV.
  • He has written two books based on data collected during interviews with students and teachers during those on-site visits, with co-authors Dr. Fred Lunenburg and Dr. Les Potter.

Personal Note On Responsible School Leadership 

You will notice on the front page of CBJ the interesting parallel between the book by Jocko Willink & Lief Babin, two exemplary SEAL training commanders, and these insights from Dr. Clete Bulach. Great minds travel on the same paths.

  • Core Brain Journal--Neuropsychology
    May 25, 2017 by Dr Terry James Gingras from United States

    Just finished session 118 with neuropsychologist, Dr. Braun. Excellent content presented in a relaxed style. I'm a neuropsychoogist with a specialization In ADHD so I appreciate both Dr. Parker's and Dr. Braun's efforts demystifying the practice of neuropsychology.

  • Exceptional interviews !!
    May 16, 2017 by MCVGRL from United States

    Core Brain Journal, with Dr. Charles Parker is a must listen for a wide audience. If you are either the individual, suffering from complex personal medical/ psychological issues; or a family member, friend... please tune in often.

  • Podcast 107 (Brain Health) - Very informative!
    April 13, 2017 by ad1978mke from United States

    I especially liked this Podcast because it provided a wealth of valuable brain health research and tips in an approachable, easy-to-listen-to format. The rapport between the Guest Speaker (Dr. Braun) and Host (Dr. Parker) was evident, and I hope to hear another Podcast with this Guest Speaker!

  • Top quality information
    February 5, 2017 by MD Ireland from Ireland

    As a functional medicine doc I found this iterview stimulating, inspiring and it is full of clinically useful information

  • Fascinating
    February 1, 2017 by jinki1 from United States

    If you love science and psychology, then this is for you. The brain is such a mysterious machine, and listening to experts discuss how it works is fascinating. This seems like a pick-and-choose type podcast: I'll skip the shows focusing on estrogen and alzeimer's and go for creativity, anxiety, music, and others. But what I've listened to so far is great.

  • My Brain Thanks You!
    January 13, 2017 by B. Keenan Johnston from United States

    Thanks for shedding some much needed light on issues of the brain. I recently became interested in the subject when I was listening to NPR do a segment on neuroplasticity. I could never remember the name of the author, but it helped me find this great podcast!

  • Flipping Junkie Review
    December 23, 2016 by Danny Johnson -Flipping Junkie from United States

  • “How I Found Myself” Dean Roberts
    December 2, 2016 by Don Hutcheson from United States

    I just had the pleasure of listening to Dr. Charles Parker’s latest interview with Mr. Dean Roberts on the topic: “How I Found Myself.” The thesis of this remarkable podcast is that the difference between treatment success and failure for conditions such as depression, anxiety, ADHD, PTSD and others is often the result of omitting crucial brain, biomedical, and functional neuroscience information and insights. Well done and much-needed. Wish you continuing success!
