“You make a difference by inspiring others to make a difference.”
Another incisively insightful post from Leadership Freak.
I attended a workshop recently and the leader, a recently former principal, bluntly told us, a group of like-minded educators who are actively seeking out innovative and creative teaching practices, that the best way to inspire change is to model change. It was so simple yet so powerful and it has stayed with me. Trying to ‘fix’ others, however, is, it would appear, a non-starter. Rather, as Leadership Freak notes, helping others to see their own potential is more likely to inspire them to ‘dare to act’.
