What got you here won’t get you there...
Biggest Takeaways You Don't Want to Miss:
- The things that made you successful in your old position are not the same things that will make you successful in your new position.
- The reason that so many of us are exhausted and overwhelmed is that we never learned how to help others be as good as we are. So, it always feels as if we are dragging others towards the goal and that we are doing their work as well as our work in order to make our schools successful.
- There is a better way. Leaders typically end up successful based on their own efforts. Builder’s learn to be successful by working with and through others so that everyone reaches the goal together.
Does it ever feel like you are dragging your school towards your goals? Do you ever get frustrated because others are not as committed as you are to your goals?
Do you sometimes wish that you could just clone yourself in order to get the job done? If so, then you’ve likely fallen into the trap that many instructional coaches, school administrators, and central office leaders fall into -- I call it the “trapeze moment.” We all have faced our own “trapeze moment” at some point in our careers and it’s always because at some point, we must realize that what got us here won’t get us there.
In other words, the things that made us so successful in the past may not be the things that will take us to the next level. So, if you’re currently frustrated because you feel like you are carrying the weight of your entire school on your back and working WAY harder than those you lead, then tune in today to discover how to overcome the trapeze moment #LikeABuilder.
