There are leaders and colleagues in our midst who empower us. They stand by us, give us good ideas, celebrate the successes, and work together. They are the people we look to and for as we reach for better service to children and the education community.
There are also those that do not empower. No idea other than their own is a good idea. They are not open minded. They rule rather than serve and demean rather than empower. It's good to steer clear of leaders and colleagues like that.
