The best leaders think of themselves as the students, not the teachers. It's especially important to understand their WHY (why we do what we do) so they can inspire people to live and approach their own lives with purpose and intention.
Lead with trust, empowerment, and involvement while removing barriers and obstacles is an educational leader’s primary role.
Lead towards creating a culture of improvement rather than compliance. Because as the call for compliance increases and becomes more detailed, it becomes more and more intrusive and ineffective.
