Monday Moanin Thoughts #263 Here Is The Opener For Summit 2017

Happy final Monday Moanin of July, 2017. This week 120 educators from the tri-county of Detroit will attend the 6th Annual Hickey Leadership Planning Summit. It is during the Summit that participants begin to do some focused planning with their teams for the upcoming 2017-18 school year. Every year the Summit begins with an opener. I wanted to share part of the opener with you. Please consider using it as a prompt or reflection as you plan your year. 

The following questions are adapted from George Couros. Reflect individually and then as a group on the following: 5 Questions To Ask Yourself  To Start The School Year  :

What are you passionate about?

What are your strengths and how can they be utilized?

What are two qualities that you look for in a colleague?

Rockwell writes; “Leaders who can’t question themselves can’t be questioned by others.”  What is one question you have for this year?

What does success at the end of the year look like to you?



Good luck as you begin a new year and that your planning is productive. Have a great week and keep finding the good stuff.
