Support and Promote Leadership

Looking for ways to promote and support leadership with students and colleagues is important as you become more experienced in the teaching profession.

In what ways can we provide students with the opportunity to develop and use leadership skills in meaningful ways? One way to do this is to ask yourself often, "Do I have to do this or could a child lead this effort?" There are so many school activities that children can lead, and by leading those events, they learn well.

In what ways can we provide opportunity to our colleagues to lead? For veteran educators like me, it means taking a back step, listening, and allowing colleagues to take the helm. That's not always easy to do, but it's important.

Promoting quality leadership in those you work for and with is integral to positive teaching/learning organizations, and it's important to look for ways to make this happen.
