School Leadership Reimagined - Are You Tweaking or Transforming?

EPISODE 139

Are You Tweaking or Transforming?

Biggest Takeaways You Don't Want to Miss:
  • Most people say they want transformation but are unwilling to do the work it takes to actually achieve it.
  • You cannot tweak your way to real transformation.
  • People who are looking for tweaks and tricks are doing so because they more comfortable in their current situation than they are hungry for something better.
  • Tweaks and tricks give you the illusion that you are making progress, but in reality, they only help you stay stuck where you are, but do so more efficiently.

As leaders, we were taught to constantly tweak what we are doing so that we can get better. But as Builders, you know that you cannot tweak your way to success. And yet, so many of us waste so much time and energy on tweaks rather than focusing on true transformation. So in this episode, we’re going to examine the difference between tweaking and transforming our schools. It’s time to stop wasting time and energy on tiny, incremental gains and start seeing real transformation #LikeABuilder.
