EPISODE 93

How to Keep District Mandates
from Derailing Your Plans

Biggest Takeaways You Don't Want to Miss:
  • Bosses tend to react to new mandates. Such emotional responses keep you from proactively moving forward.  
  • Leaders respond to new mandates. While that’s better than reacting, it still puts you in a passive position and leaves every goal you pursue vulnerable.
  • Builders anticipate threats to their goals and make “context agnostic” decisions that help them maintain their momentum regardless of whatever mandate comes down the pike.

Find out the difference between the way that bosses, leaders, and builders respond to district mandates and unexpected policy changes and discover how you can make your school "mandate-proof" #LikeABuilder
