Leadership videos

Last week, I had the great pleasure of engaging in 3 days of leadership learning with Chris Wright. I was introduced to the most fascinating take I have heard on leadership in my 21 years in education. It is somewhat common to hear the same types of messages in leadership training e.e. vision, strategic, goals, relationships etc and depending on your experience you tend to lean more towards/and listen to advice that fits with your own values and beliefs.

A key highlight for me from this learning was the words of wisdom from Tim Brighouse, he succinctly captures the skills he feels leaders need in crisis, these are

* intellectual curiosity
* unwarranted optimism
* crisis is the norm, complexity is fun
* complete absence of paranoia and self pity

What do you agree with and what do you disagree with?
