Some leaders get it done

by Chris Lindholm

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?
