Welcome to the first Monday Moanin in October 2013. The colors are already beginning to change across Michigan as the 2013-14 school year moves on. To assist you in your work, I thought it was a great time to share some of my favorite quotes that inspire me. Hopefully one of these will resonate with you and may guide your efforts this week. Here are my top five for this week.
- “Confusion reigns in the absence of information. Keep enhancing your communication, share your thinking.” Hoerr
- ” Be a teacher. Don’t hoard what you know. Share it. Freely give and share what you know so those you lead can be successful.” Bossong
- ” The courage of leadership is giving others the chance to succeed even though you bear the responsibility if they fail.” Sinek
- “Leaders that check their egos at the door have far greater influence. Humility keeps leaders listening.” Neilsen
- “What do people say when they walk into your building? What do they feel? What do they notice about your students? Get to work on climate and tone.” Hickey
Have a great week and keep finding the good stuff.
