MVP: Being a member of a professional community is important!
If you happen to be reading this message some time between 11-12:30 (EST), then I am in my Mastermind group.
A Mastermind consists of a small number of people who share a common interest. In my case, there are six of us who come together each week to discuss creating and running virtual communities.
We share expertise and help each other problem solve, and because we all come from different sectors, the variety of perspectives is extremely valuable.
More importantly, we are there to celebrate with each other and sometimes to console and lift each other up.
Community is about growing your skills, but it is also about being human.
There are lots of places to find professional communities and those communities take different forms. The critical thing is to have one.
Today’s intention: Identify your community and do one thing to be an active participant.
Shameless plug: If you are an assistant principal you can ask to join our free AP group here on LinkedIn or our paid private community here. Feel free to email me if you have questions!
