LWISD Bullfrog Bulletin

February 19, 2016

Do your teachers have low or high expectations for their students? This is how you tell:

What Makes a Leader?

"But the job of leaders is not taking power, but the opposite: empowering. The job of a leader is create a reality in which performance itself stops being merely a performance — to focus people on the meaning and mission of their work, not on the politics of flattering and threatening, cajoling and conquering."

"Leaders breathe life into the organizations they lead, into the people they’re responsible for. They breathe life into possibilities. They make it more possible for the rest of us to dare, imagine, create, and build. They do not merely encourage us to do so; theirs is the hard work of crafting all the incentives, processes, systems, and roles that actually empower us to do so."
