Some leaders get it done
Thanks to fellow blogger and school leader Dr. Robert Dillon, I ran across this Ted Talks video once again. The message resonates loudly in my mind as I wrestle with the concepts of my current reads – Michael Fullan’s book Motion Leadership and his recent article illustrating new research on drivers of whole system reform in education. Like it or not, it is indeed a time of major change in economics, technology and how we do education. It is a time requiring courageous leadership that is grounded deeply in our core mission while also focused on creating a culture of innovation and personalization. Leadership today demands being able to capture the realities of financial cuts and shifting national/state priorities as golden opportunities to tighten up our work. This short presentation speaks to leading such changes and creating a culture of understanding, buy-in, and synergy.
Up for the challenge?
