Are you a hero? I hope not.
Think about your favorite movie or story:
We are a culture obsessed with heroic leadership. The problem is that heroic leadership, like your favorite story, is all about the hero. In contrast, organizations are all about the purpose, and the only way to achieve organizational alignment is by working together.
Let’s look at how this plays out in schools.
The number one factor in student achievement is the classroom teacher.
The number two factor is the principal.
Principal’s don’t teach students, so how do they influence student achievement?
Great principals focus on helping teachers grow. In a good school, the heroes are the teachers, not the principal.
In your work, the heroes should be those you serve, not you.
Do good and be well,
