MVP: Invest some time in your own growth by creating space to reflect with other leaders.
A few weeks from now I will be releasing the 100th episode of The Assistant Principal Podcast!
It features and interview with my mentor Dr. Jan Osborn. One of the things that enhanced our relationship was debriefing on Friday afternoons.
Many times, after most others had gone home, Jan and I would sit and reflect on key events from the past week. Part of the power in these sessions was that we both reflected and therefore we both grew.
Last week I shared how if we care for someone, we let them guide the direction of their growth, as opposed to trying to control it.
By meeting regularly at the end of the week with other leaders, you can create the opportunity for others to grow in the directions they deem most important. It is a win-win.
Today’s intention: At the end of the day, sit with another leader and unpack your week and their week.
Before you go…
This week we’ve looked at multiple ways to coach “up.” The topic was suggested by one of our wonderfully engaged leaders/readers. If there is something you’d like to see me address, please share!
