Energy and Change

I'm almost three and half years into the superintendency with this year being the most engaging up to this point. I've had the wonderful opportunity to be a part of a team in Kansas that is focusing on redesigning the high school experience for students. 

The driving points for me go back to the start of this blog on developing leaders for the future. This development starts with how we train ourselves to look at change and the responses when plans don't go our way. Helping ourselves and students develop a vision for what they want to see happen is crucial in being this change.

Energy is the difference maker and when a group of people can work through those barriers the change process becomes part of the culture. Constant communication and collaboration are what I see as the foundational blocks to helping to develop our future leaders.
