Re: What I Have Learned
You know, this is really just a pretty good "How to be a better human" list. Hang in there...and thanks for reminding me how lucky I am to be a "one-man-show" in an itty-bitty West Texas district.
Trout - "staff of one"
Maybe but pretty sure a lot directors could have written this.
Word - I know exactly who, which district you are talking about!
I work in a large district with many directors and personalities.
We have zoom meetings weekly.
This is what I have learned....
1) Listen before you talk
2) Don't panic if you don't get an answer
3) This is a process
4) Have a sense of humor
5) You don't have all the answers
6) Leaders are necessary but being the one that speaks all the time doesn't make you the leader
7) Respect other opinions, that's all you are offering (your opinion)
8) Some questions don't require everyone to be involved. Save your question for one on one. Email!
9) Being succinct is a lost art
10) Playing the "what if" game is futile
11) Everyone has their own way. Stop being the person that demands everyone do it your way. Leave room for other people
12) Humble bragging is obvious and annoying
So many more but....No. 13) It will be ok! Calm down. We will get through this. In the grand scheme of things, we are ok.
