1. Make Decisions from the start

2. Make Change Slowly

3. Learn Names

4.  Sweep the Naysayers Along

5. Be the Joy in your School

6. Keep That Rant to Yourself

7. Challenge People to be Part of the Solution

8. Say it, Mean It, and Do It

9. Take Care of You

10. Fake It Until You Make It

Which lesson would be the most challenging for you as a first year administrator?
