SEL Leadership – Lead From Where You Are
July 21, 2021
SEL Leadership: “I’m just…” It’s a phrase we hear all the time. I’m just a teacher, I’m just an assistant principal, I’m just a tech director, I’m just a custodian… the list goes on and on and is always followed by reasons something CAN’T happen. Leadership is not a title, it’s an action…and it starts from within. Identifying leadership traits in yourself changes your mindset when thinking about leading those around you. Part of our responsibilities as leaders are to identify leadership traits in others. The opportunities are endless for those who choose to lead…it’s our job to find those traits, focus our efforts on growth opportunities, and foster an environment where everyone has a chance to lead.
