Sitting on the bus on my way home from another assignment as a self-employed consultant – my thoughts are going back and forth, and I am trying to figure out what I am really thinking about ...
I am aware that I am thinking about myself - my own journey as a human being, but also as a leader. Most of my time is spent examining possibilities and solutions for often complex and difficult tasks. Many of the complexities and challenges I recognize from mine previous leadership assignments within the organizations where I had my formal management assignments.
Now I'm reflecting on the part I play in of these processes with others ... The power of joint effort and collaboration is something that I alone can never create! Once again, I acknowledge to myself that I am a leader who is given the mandate to lead because of my dedication and interest in educational issues. Because of this I get to work with the most important people in school development - teachers and students together with their principal!
I, myself cannot create development - collaboration with the others is what gives the power and the drive forward!
So grateful that I may be a part of others' joy in succeeding!
