I would be careful subscribing to the lists as an end-all-to-be-all.  If a teacher was doing several things on the first list and very few on the second, it is problematic. My classroom looked disorganized, but I was on top of things, we had lots of conversation, we used creative projects, had few discipline issues, etc. Students enjoyed coming to classes. That is the ultimate measure.

4 Ways Leaders Can Create a Candid Culture

4 Ways Leaders Can Create a Candid Culture | Teaching and Learning | Scoop.it

When leaders want to create an open culture where people are willing to speak up and challenge one another, they often start by listening. This is a good instinct. But listening with your ears will only take you so far. You also need to demonstrate with words that you truly want people to raise risky issues.

Don's point is well-made: sacrifice ego. Too often, bosses want to talk and not listen. Sometimes stepping back and listening is important. It allows the other person to share their complete thought rather than only half which might not be enough.
