What’s the message?

Crossposted at EdAdministrators2.0
The past two and a half years have been difficult as a school leader. We have moved two schools – a K-6 and a 7-12 – into a new building. As we started this process we did a number of team building activities and had staff meetings together. The message I always began with is “Do what is best for students”. Today i still begin our discussions this way. The implied message is that what we do may not always be what is easiest or less stressful or …. but will be in the best interest of the students we serve.

As a leader, it is important that you have a cornerstone upon which you can stand because that will be what will see you through the difficult times, provide you guidance in times of uncertainty and ground you when things are going well.
