Feeling Defeated Already?
Biggest Takeaways You Don't Want to Miss:
- It can be easy to feel overwhelmed in spite of your best intentions. This school year is already off to a rocky start and it can seem as if there is no room for your vision, mission, and core values. But delaying that work is a mistake.
- When things are tough, it is tempting to revert to a leadership mindset and focus on putting out fires, cleaning up messes, and dealing with the crisis of the day. Builders detach from the immediate and step out ahead to find solutions you cannot see as long as you stay in the middle of the problems.
- Buildership® is not something you put off until things get better (that’s leadership thinking). Buildership® is HOW you make things better.
Welcome back to this season of the School Leadership Reimagined Podcast! Although I'd planned to do a completely different episode today, so many Builders have been reporting that they are already feeling a bit overwhelmed, frustrated, or defeated (and the school year has barely started) that I wanted to address it on today's episode.
So, if you are becoming discouraged by the new spikes in Covid cases, teacher shortages, contact tracing requirements, teacher burnout, political landmines (hello masks, vaccines, and critical race theory!) or any other frustration, then today's episode is for you. Instead of feeling defeated, find out how to handle these challenges and keep your school focused on what matters #LikeABuilder.
