Episode 63: The Top 10 Leadership Nuggets of 2023
I love year end top 10 lists!
This doesn’t happen as much anymore, but magazines like People and Newsweek used to come out with a special edition in mid-December.
This special issue would feature the Top 10 in everything! Top 10 TV shows, movies, songs, athletes, movie stars, cars, teams, trends, words, etc. of that year.
For many years, I would get one or two of these in my stocking on Christmas morning. With some extra time on my hands between Christmas and New Year’s, I would often read them cover to cover.
As I look back on 2023 and the last 52 podcasts, with over 25 hours of content, I decided to make a Top 10 list of my own.
I would like to share with you what I think are this podcast’s 10 best leadership nuggets of the past year!
I would also like to take this opportunity to say thank you for listening throughout the year and I want to wish you and your loved ones a healthy and happy new year!
I know that you are super busy, so be sure to listen while you are doing something else. I hope that you will get value from this episode as you serve and lead your school community. Thank you for taking some time out of your day to listen to the podcast!
