I was inspired to write mine - it is not a tick box exercise, but a way to consider living your role and values - it would naturally change over time, but in early 2019 this is what I think!
Mine is - My leadership experiences within 5 years
10 - use social media to be evangelical about your passions
9 - spur others into physical activity - a love of watching it or doing it or both
8 - demonstrate that you can effectively perform your role in a different way with a strong focus on serving the community and being true to your values
7 – be coached
6 – coach other aspiring leaders
5 – keep a reflective diary
4 – ensure that your leadership is about how you make people feel and when giving difficult messages to people ensure they do not feel undermined or undervalued or compromised
3 – lead and inspire action research projects which lead to self-improvement or positive organisational change across more than 3 schools
2 - teach or teach and live overseas
1 – lobby leaders in or of education with suggestions for positive change using evidenced based learning, experiences and theories.
