Why I do what I do/Why I love what I am doing now:
I have fully retired as the CEO of the school that I started. I had many, wonderful and fulfilling roles in education since I started in 1994. I learned and achieved a lot. It was time for me to pivot to do two things: focus on my family and focus on helping more leaders grow❤️
I truly believe that the most important job as a leader is to empower and grow more leaders. If we don't do this then who will STEP IN when we STEP OUT? 👠👢👞🥾
The transition has been amazing. Growing leaders is something that I have always done. Putting it together in my first book "So You Want to Be a Superintendent? Become the Leader You Were Meant to Be!" enabled me to really drill down to how I have grown and how I have grown the leadership efficacy of others 🤩
If you are not growing leaders in your organization start right now 🗣
1️⃣Have conversations with your staff members and find out what their aspirations are.
2️⃣Find opportunities for those emerging leaders to...you guessed it...LEAD. Can they run a PD session? How about mentoring a new or struggling teacher? Can they serve on or chair a committee?
3️⃣Support their efforts and their growth. Check-in with them and discuss what they think is going well and what they think they need help with-and repeat.
Before you know it you have created a PIPELINE of leaders who can help your organization achieve its goals!
In love, friendship, and leadership,
