What value leadership?
Just returned from a school leadership course and the end of a long year of self-analysis and thought. I found it interesting that, whatever topic we ended up discussing, it all came down to two questions:
- What do I value?
- How can I communicate what I value to others?
The first question is, I suppose, about me. The second is about whoever else I come in contact with, i.e. You. (Well, someone who isn’t me anyway.)
I feel 2 lists coming on…
- Free thought
- A willingness to question even the fundamentals
- A sense of what is right and wrong
- Being open to new ideas
How can I communicate that?
- Understand what you value
- Feel what you value
Once we get there, aren’t we most of the way towards effective leadership?
