Driving But Not Steering #leadership #edchat
I found myself asking this question: Can I drive our district without steering it?
Because that's what I really want to be able to do.
I want to be able to help us accelerate by pressing on the gas sometimes. I feel like it's part of my role to continue to push us and stretch us. I want to be able to brake as needed because there are times when we really need to slow down and think about what's ahead or just enjoy the view around us.
However, I'm not sure how much I want to steer. I'm not here to take people where I think they should be but I'm here to make sure they get where they want to be.
Eventually, I'd like to just be a passenger. Just along for the ride.
Does this make sense to anyone beside me? How much driving/steering should leaders do? I'd love to hear your thoughts.
