How to Create a Personal Leadership Philosophy


Today’s episode is the third episode in our special summer series!

Great school leaders use a variety of tools to maximize their impact as leaders.

One of them is leadership philosophies that are helpful in establishing their leadership framework.

In today’s episode, I speak about how to create a personal leadership philosophy, and why it is important.

You already have a personal leadership philosophy – it’s the way you choose to lead and manage your people,

and so I want you to take a moment and pause.

Take a moment to reflect, slow down and really understand what your leadership approach is.

In this episode, I speak about:

  • How to approach personal and company leadership.
  • The micromanager vs. the hands-off leadership approach and why they are interdependent.
  • The three parts of my personal leadership philosophy and how they manifest in my day-to-day.
  • The challenges of living up to your leadership philosophy.

… and so much more!

Your leadership philosophy is important, it defines your reputation and your character in your organization and beyond.
