Be a listener.
Lead by action.
Walk the walk. (Walking the walk is more important than talking the talk when walking is not part of that talking.)
Offer praise and catch people doing something good.
Share celebrations with staff and students.
Take ownership of discipline issues.
Delegate decisions not just tasks.
Know about each student and be known to students.
Write notes of thanks.
Let people know why you have to do what you do with regard to imposed system. Understand policy and direction.

Colleagues, these are a little random but all have status at one time or another.

I hope you all have a great week.


Henry Gray
