Happy mid July 2016 Monday Moanin to all of you. For the past several weeks a question has beenon my mind regarding the many leaders that I meet with , do they lead as a giver or a taker? July is a perfect time to begin reflecting on how you lead and is your school or organization more giving or taking? To assist you in this process, below are six questions, thoughts, and quotes for your consideration. Good luck as you focus and reflect. Use these prompts to conduct an audit on your leadership and your organization. Hopefully all of us can begin the process of becoming more of a giver as we prepare for a new school year.
Do you take credit or give credit to others for your organizations success?
Givers need to set limits because takers rarely do.
Do you give clear directions for your staff on where you are headed or do you take for granted that they know your vision?
“Takers don’t inspire the world. Givers do.” Robin Sharma
Does your staff work together collaboratively giving to each other or do they operate as independent contractors and take action only on what they deem important?
Do you have staff members and colleagues that are taking advantage of poor leadership?
Have a great week and keep finding the good stuff.
