How would you describe your school?

At the Principals' meeting on Wednesday we will be reflecting about your "brand." How would your team describe your school and also how would outside forces describe your school? Would their descriptions be the same or different? I am looking forward to hearing the discussion. Be thinking and ready to share.

Challenge: Tell me more about that......

I challenge you in the upcoming week to listen longer than you think you need to. What I mean by that is, when someone approaches you with a problem or a question , you immediately start to analyze and even solve. It's our nature right? It might even be what makes us effective in our jobs, the ability to solve. I challenge you to intentionally listen a little bit longer. Ask "Tell me more about that..." and listen some more. You might even say "what do you think should happen?" Getting in the discipline of doing this might change you as a leader and more importantly will build the capacity of those around you. GIve it a try and let me know if you have an experience you could share!
