Key Takeaways:
  • If you're not actively spending time reflecting on how to improve as a leader and examining what leadership is, you're not performing to your highest potential.
  • You increase the meaningfulness of your impact on students by regularly visiting classrooms and providing meaningful feedback to teachers.
  • It's not about being right, it's about being connected, and if you're connected, the right will take care of itself.
  • If your connected to those you lead, even if they don't believe in your vision, they will support you in creating a new one. Whereas if they even believe in your vision, but don't feel connected or support you, they'll get a different person to follow.
  • The productivity blueprint of planning, sharing, doing, sustaining, and leading.
  • If you only had an hour a week to teach your subject to your students, what would you teach? And what would you leave behind?
  • You have to make sure you are investing enough into people so that when you need to make a withdrawal due to correction or criticism, it doesn't hurt the overall relationship. 
  • Busyness is not productivity. You don’t want to be busy. You want to be impactful.
  • Use memos to share information and use meetings to discuss issues
  • The importance of managing expectations
