  1. As an educational leader, have you ever asked yourself ‘What would I do if I weren’t afraid?’ (By @tgrierhisd)

 

  1. “Fatigue makes cowards of us all.” -Vince Lombardi (By @Leadershipfreak)

 

  1. Vince Lombardi once hosted a 4-day coaches’ clinic and devoted two full days to just one play, the Power Sweep. In-N-Out Burger has become wildly successful with just a few menu items they do amazingly well. The key is to lead with your strengths. (BY @JonGordon11)

 

  1. Egotistical leaders focus on self. Servant leaders turn toward others. Prideful leaders congratulate themselves. Servant leaders applaud others. Big wheels bloviate. Servant leaders listen. Savior-leaders fix problems. Servant leaders seize opportunities. (By @leadershipfreak)

 

  1. “In this country, you’re not supposed to have to depend on the kindness of strangers or the generosity of wealthy patrons to get a decent education.” (By @pastors4OKkids)

 

  1. So many of my students are still so afraid to check books out from the library. They don’t want to tell me the fear is rooted in a belief that if they lose them, they’ll owe fines. This is AFTER I’ve told them there are no fines. Fear is a powerful deterrent, real or imagined. (By @juliaerin80)

 

  1. If you want to get better, always hire the best, even if that means shorter tenure overall. As a superintendent, I only hired direct reports that had the potential to develop into superintendents. I would rather have a great leader for two years than a mediocre leader for 20 years. (By @tgrierhisd)

 

  1. In dynamic organizations leaders are catalysts more than authorities. Authority is about controlling. Leadership is about releasing. Organizations aren’t charts on the wall. They’re people down the hall. (By @leadershipfreak)

 

  1. “I am so thankful for colleagues that go to administration when they have a problem with me rather than coming directly to me. It’s much less awkward!” Said no teacher ever. (By @gerrybrooksprin)

 

  1. If you’re stressed, your team is stressed even more. (By @leadershipfreak)
