Good Leadership Thoughts from Philly

Yesterday we talked at length about leadership and what leadership looks like for division heads in independent schools. Our presenter had prepared a list of leadership tasks for us to think about. I do not know where she got the list so I apologize in advance for not giving credit where credit is due. We focused on the fact that these tasks are just that: tasks of leaders. These tasks exist for leaders regardless of leadership style, personality, characteristics, etc. The list is intriguing so I'll share here without editorializing but simply as food for thought.

  • Leaders find and listen to their inner voice
  • Leaders listen to and attend to others
  • Leaders tell stories and inspired shared vision
  • Leaders cultivate an organization's creative imagination
  • Leaders evoke conversations that matter
  • Leaders foster renewal
