Ultimately, an innovative leader should try to create new ideas, but it is more important that they create a culture of innovation. We often talk about empowering people and then getting out of their way, but what is often missed in the process is removing some of those barriers that they will encounter along the way.
This why it is so important to spend time in the classrooms, see what teaching and learning looks like, and then help to create a better tomorrow for our students and educators. Again though, at the heart of innovation is people, not stuff. If we always keep that at the forefront of our work, we are more likely to create an innovative culture.
