What did I learn this month?

What did I learn

I have been busy recently working with schools and listening at many meetings. Like a good student I have noted down some of the things I have learnt.

  1. Lead by example– not only in management but by demonstrating that I understand teaching. Pedagogy shouldn’t be your kryptonite.
  2. Believe in teamwork. I love the idea of building a team around you. Find those who can do the things you can’t. Build others into great leaders.
  3. Motivate the staff by celebrating success and rewarding them when possible
  4. Relationships at all levels are vital. No one wants to work with someone who displays mushroom management qualities.
  5. Inspire others through my actions. Make the little things count. Remember you create the weather and influence the temperature in the staff room.
  6. Have a vision not for the here and now but for the future.
  7. Don’t forget the children and young people in your care are tomorrow’s leaders. Keep them at the centre.

It might be worth taking some time. What have you learnt this month?
