What Is Your Leadership Identity? #L2IPA

I have been reflecting on my leadership identity since I watched Baruti Kafele’s video.

  • Who am I when I walk into my school building?
  • How does my school community see me?
  • What does my presence mean to my team?

This intense thought-provoking and inspiring video brought a flood of rushing thoughts to my mind.

What is my leadership identity?

  • Positively contagious– Continuously sharing the gratefulness that I feel for the opportunity to learn at high levels in a safe and welcoming environment.
  • Encouraging– Consistently leading students and staff to believe in themselves as leaders.
  • Approachable– Always a safe place to share ideas, fears, challenges, and celebrations.
  • Transparent– Invariably leading with the goals of doing anything and everything to guide our students to reach high levels of success.

What do I want my presence to mean to my community?

  • Sunshine
  • Support
  • Collaboration
  • Motivation

How do I want students to see me?

  • Encouraging
  • Inspiring
  • Safe

Share an authentic smile and be an inspiring force that leads others to see and reach beyond their potential.

  1. What I return to every day is this idea your shared in our ” Dare to be Great” discussion

    You shared that people should feel our smiles before they even see us…

    I have thought about this so much…

    This beautiful revealing of our spirit to others

    To feel another’s smile even before you see them..

    I aspire to this each and every day since the moment you shared this

    My life is forever forward in love because of your leadership
