"In this paper—the second installment in our School Turnaround Model Series—we outline three specific behaviors that school leaders can implement to make the impact that research has proven possible: 1) defining and communicating a vision, 2) ensuring high-impact teaching, and 3) creating and leading teams."
Since student learning depends so heavily on visionary leadership, we believe it is vital to address the principal’s role in turning around severely underperforming schools. In this paper—the second installment in our School Turnaround Model Series—we outline three specific behaviors that school leaders can implement to make the impact that research has proven possible: 1) …

The latest in Forbes from our CEO, Randy Shumway:

"Although some states, still reeling from the Great Recession, are hesitant to take on debt to finance infrastructure projects, investment in our current and future infrastructure is often a smart long-term decision."

"A Cicero client, a brick and mortar education provider, illustrates this principle. The firm had a significant footprint of campuses, and its unique connection with its customers provided much of its competitive advantage. The firm decided to offer customers self-service online options to both grow revenue, reduce costs, and stay ahead of the competition. On the surface, this move promised very positive outcomes for customers, including. . . ."
The success of any company, large or small, depends on whether or not decisions are made with customers in mind. This seems like an uncontroversial statement, but it is very common for firms to make decisions designed to grow revenue or increase efficiency without thinking about the impact those moves will have on their customers. …

In our experience with hundreds of organizations working in dozens of sectors around the globe, too many funders, investors, and practitioners take it as an article of faith that their efforts for good will work. But good intentions are not enough; passionate efforts don’t always equal impact. The problem is that this pivotal fact usually goes unnoticed.

In contrast, those who generate significant positive impact, whether through traditional or innovative means, typically take a more “scientific” approach to social impact.
The science of social impact views strategies, programs, and activities more as theories that need to be tested and refined over time.

School leaders who want to improve student performance can tap into a combination of these elements. In this paper—the fifth installment in our School Turnaround Model Series—we explain the impact of parental engagement, especially in turnaround schools, and then identify three actions that leaders can take to improve engagement levels in their schools: 1) training teachers, 2) empowering parents, and 3) fostering community.

"Before joining Cicero, I was part of Teach For America’s 2014 corps and taught 6th grade in the Bronx. I had a great experience teaching and loved living in New York. I had also known for a while that I wanted to branch out into business, and consulting seemed like the best avenue to do that. I found Cicero and discovered it was a perfect fit—I’ve even been privileged to work with the firm’s education practice (Ed Direction), which has allowed me to stay in touch with my education roots."

The article, titled “Mission Possible,” was focus on the measurement of policy and advocacy work, which are notoriously some of the most difficult nonprofit actions to quantify.

"Often considered the “third rail of American politics,” the Social Security debate is so emotionally charged and controversial that many politicians avoid discussing the subject entirely. However, failing to act in a smart, forward-thinking, bipartisan manner will only put us further behind the demographic changes of our time. Social Security is an old dog, but it can and must learn a few new tricks to ensure sustainable care for the elderly."

I am no longer an employee of Cicero however. allow me to paint a scenario that we can ALL relate to. Imagine showing up to your Dr.s appointment being ignored by the receptionist, wait in the waiting room longer then 15 min. finally being taken to the examination room and suddenly having to wait even longer. You inform your physician of the flu like symptoms you've been experiencing and after being in the room for only 2 1/2 minutes your physician charges you (out of your own pocket) for a Transgender operation. We contact you and ask specific questions to receive feedback from you and the information provided is properly handled also posted anonymously at your discretion on the hospitals website to provide feedback, back to "YOU" the patient. So ignore posts claiming "Nothing is being done." and/or "To remove us off the calling list." Recognize the bigger picture, we have your lives and your best interest at heart. With that being said, DO NOT deny or hang up on us when we call you. Thank you. LeeRoy Taito "Still a great place to work."

Annoying marketing group... Calls on my cell phone and when I answer they hang up. Have blocked them.. you do as well. If you are considering doing business with this company. I wouldn't, you won't get a result as it appears they aren't following through.
