MVP: Ask people questions that help you learn about them.
Oh, today’s episode of The Assistant Principal Podcast is soooo awesome!
Alexandra Auriemma is a wonderful assistant principal in New York.
Way back in episode 153 I suggested three questions school leaders should ask their veteran teachers:
Alex involved the whole team, not only in asking veterans but in conferencing with all of their teachers.
The biggest takeaway was this – listening to people helps them feel valued, and helps you be better at supporting and growing them.
I hope you listen to the full episode, whether you are an educator or not, there is so much to learn from Alex’s experience.
Today’s intention: How would you answer these questions? How would you feel if someone asked them and then listened intently? So, what’s stopping you from giving that gift to someone else?
