Show Notes For Episode 11: The 4 New Year's Resolutions Every Private School Leader Should Make

The 4 New Year's Resolutions Every Private School Leader Should Make


Big Takeaways


  • I will follow the 15/30 rule of self care (Set aside 15 minutes every weekday and 30 minutes on Saturday and Sunday where you prioritize self care. 15 minutes a day where you do something to take care of yourself).


  • I will always know what to do next at work (Picture this: You are sitting at your desk, on the corner of your desk is an index card, on it are 3-4 tasks that start with a verb, this is your MUST DO LIST, when you sit down at your desk, you will NOT OPEN EMAIL, you will start working on the next thing on your MUST DO LIST. You will always know WHAT TO DO NEXT).


  • I will practice intentional encouragement once a day (Notice which of your people need to be encouraged, write 2-3 sentences in a text, email or Post-It, use the “habit stacking” strategy so that you do it every day)


  • I will have an intentional plan for my leadership growth (Write down the one thing that you are going to do 30 minutes every week to grow yourself as a leader)
