Finally, I decided to just dive in and chose The Innovator's Mindset as my pool. Looking back at what I highlighted, I had four points that resonated with me even before I got to Chapter 1! No wonder it wasn't difficult after that to keep swimming. As I read, what resonated the MOST with me and the situation in which I found myself was this:
None of that means that I suddenly embraced change in a way never done before. But I am trying to learn more about how to be the type of leader that I want to follow: one who embraces change, who encourages innovation, and who makes it safe to fail. Since I've always seen myself as a right-hand woman, the #2 to whoever is my #1, that's a hard change to make. But I'm working on it.
What good is doing something in a new way unless it also produces better results?
So let's do something new and BETTER together! Let's learn together, from and with each other, in an effort to change the world...because aren't we all trying to make the world a better place, even if for only one student?
