When one is in leadership, leadership in any way, there is the temptation to become elite.  One way to combat that temptation is to make it a habit to work with and for those you lead. Make the time to do the jobs that are the least paid or respected in the organization. Take the time to talk to those you lead and really listen to what they have to say.  For classroom teachers like me, that means listening closely to my students and their families; completing the tasks that I ask the students to do and making change when my students' thoughts and ideas prompt that action.
