Why leaders must first change themselves

IMG_1365Each week this summer I’m introducing a blog theme that connects popular and important posts from recent years. Each theme offers a number of perspectives on a perennial challenge of school leadership.

This week’s topic is “leaders change first.”

This week’s theme could be alternatively titled, “Do what you’ve always done and you’ll get what you’ve always gotten.”

What leaders believe, understand, say, and do on a daily basis matters. That’s why significant change in teaching, learning, and relationships in schools begins with significant changes in leaders.

I encourage you to scroll through articles in this thread to find those that match your interests.

In addition, I encourage you to take a closer look at these essays:

“Doing what we’ve never done”

“6 choices that can have a profound effect on the school community”

“8 ways you can become a positive deviant”
