The 4 Habits of Principals who accomplish all their goals and enjoy a life outside of school | Andy Johnsen Coaching

There are a few principals who seem to carry themselves through their days and weeks with a sense of relaxed poise and positive energy. They exude an aura of calm, steady “togetherness” that complements the passion and excitement they feel for their work. Being around them puts their staff at ease, energizes others and (if we’re being honest here) may make their colleagues a bit envious. What is it about these people? And why are they so rare?

Pete Reed's insight:

This is a good word for aspiring, new, and experienced principals.

"Once the environment was orderly, fewer kids were dropping out and graduation rates began to improve. “Initially, you look for quick wins to motivate staff,” says Mel Riddile, associate director of high school services for the National Association of Secondary School Principals. Riddile, who consulted with Jones at JCM, describes him as “extremely focused and resolute. He has a sense of urgency about what he does and understands the importance of the mission.”
