Leadership Reflection Term 2

Leadership is hard but it’s also important. Vitally important. And it begins with how leaders treat people. Ineffective leaders are those who have all of the attributes from the above list. Have you worked for one? What would you do differently?

Understand however, that we can have situations where we may show one of those attributes in the ineffective list. For example, maybe we spend too much time being reactive. Is it possible to survey, interview and create focus groups of stakeholders to help us understand our current reality to help change from ineffective to effective? Can we work with a leadership coach to help us create a goal and achieve it?

Leadership isn’t about getting what we want and feeding our egos. Leadership is about raising the self-efficacy of others and collectively working to improve our school community together. That happens in creative communities more than it happens in compliant communities.

In Jim Knight’s work he talks a lot about status. Leaders have it because of their position. However, great leaders have status, but they lower theirs and raise the status of those around them, which is often referred to self-efficacy. Unfortunately, there are leaders who let their ego rule and that’s what they lead with every time.
