What’s Your Sentence?

While reading the third part of Daniel Pink’s Drive, I was struck by the idea of good leaders being identified by a single sentence. Often, one would think the more a person does to make an impact, the more effective the leadership. However, what makes a leader idolized is not the number of transformational initiatives or committees they chair, but the single identifying event of impact that lasts long after their direct supervision.

As we progress from classroom leaders into increasingly challenging leadership roles in the educational realm, I challenge you to consider what will be your sentence? Whether it be a single goal or impact you want to make on others or the profession, choose your sentence and stay true to the leader you want to become.
