Hacking Leadership

The best leaders take little openings and create space for those they lead. They find the smallest cracks of opportunity and create a path that was not there before. They shape the land. They find a way. Hacking leadership is about finding innovative solutions to issues that have plagued the system for years, and implementing them tomorrow. The focus is on practical application. We all know the problems exist, but knowledge of problems does not make our daily life in schools easier. Utilizing the tools in Hacking Leadership will allow you and your team to find the openings and create space for those you lead. Space to learn. Space to teach. Space to thrive.

Recognizing Awe

Jason Silva's Responsibility to Awe video is fantastic. It speaks to the idea of mental models and the fact that many live in comfort zones and rarely venture outside of them. One of the things we think is important about the video is a story that is not being told...awe is happen all around us. We can't mandate a time or place, it is person specific, and we never know what it is that brings people to that place of inspiration. What we CAN do is to provide an environment where stepping out of comfort zones is not only valued, but encouraged.
