Dancing as a metaphor of leadership

If you haven’t seen this, watch it.  The title kind of sums it up!


Leadership v Management

An excellent short snippet on the difference between leadership and management.  The point about having a balance is an important one.  Does your organisation have a balance between leadership and management?  Do you?  How do you know?

3 things leadership is not!


This is an excellent article on what leadership is not.  I know that sounds a bit strange, but sometimes it is easier to wear the ‘black hat’ to frame your thinking.  This article by Dianna Booher reminds us that leadership is not about position or power or pride – in fact it really is quite the opposite.  Think about leaders you respect and also those you don’t.  I have a feeling that those words, the 3 P’s will often sum up the deficit in leaders rather than the strength.  Does it?

Who can be a leader?

As Drew says…….anyone.  Although Hattie always talks about ‘Know thy Impact’ (to be fair he is talking about improving learning!) sometimes you don’t.  Sometimes it is the little things that make all the difference.  Perhaps even most of the time.

I think Drew has hit the nail on the head.  We can all be leaders.  Everyday.
