Schools Of Excellence Podcast

Aug 3, 2021

Great school leaders use a variety of tools to maximize their impact as leaders. One of them is leadership philosophies that are helpful in establishing their leadership framework. Leadership philosophies are developed over time, with experience, and are not role or company-specific. They are both deeply personal and always professional, conveying not only priorities, expectations, and communication style but also values and morals.

In today’s episode, I speak about how to create a personal leadership philosophy, and why it is important. I know you probably already have your leadership philosophy - the way that you choose to lead and manage your people - and so I want you to take a moment and pause. Take a moment to reflect, slow down and really understand what your leadership approach is.


Your leadership philosophy defines your reputation and your character in your organization and beyond.


In this episode, I speak about:


  • How to approach personal and company leadership.
  • The micromanager vs the hands-off leadership approach and why they are interdependent.
  • The three parts of my personal leadership philosophy and how they manifest in my day to day.
  • The challenges of living up to your leadership philosophy.

… and so much more!
