You may not be a principal or a director or a superintendent (traditional leaders), but you are a leader for the public, students and/or colleagues. Leadership has everything to do with how and why you do what you do. It has very little to do with formal titles and degrees.
As K-12 education is changing at warp speed, Elena Aguilar of Edutopia suggests, “…that in order to transform our schools, we’ll need many, many more leaders. We’ll need the leaders who don’t yet think they are leaders and those of us who are apprehensive about embracing the roles and responsibilities of leadership.” I couldn’t agree more.
Are you intrigued, willing to listen, but not sure what to do? Do you struggle even giving good work direction and following through with corrective action if needed? I have a suggestion…come to our Supervisor Nuts & Bolts Workshop. It is a two-part series (the second builds on the first) hosted by CMLE at no charge to you (April 14th and May 12th). If you lead, supervise, or give work direction to others, come to get tips from a professional in the field, CMLE’s treat!
