MVP: It is a natural fit for new leader to focus on supporting and growing new people
I’m using the p-12 school context to illustrate today’s idea, but it should transfer to other contexts.
One of the most challenging things for a new principal or assistant principal to do is to come into a new school and try and grow veteran teachers. I’ll dig into why that is so difficult in a future post, but today we’ll focus on new teachers.
New school leaders pairing with new teachers is a natural fit because:
If you are new, whether you are in education of another field, seek out the other people who are new, and begin laying the foundation for a strong and lasting relationship.
Today’s intention: Whether you are new or not, think about who is new to your organization and ask them how they are doing.
