Leadership Special Issue

Here is the link to the Sep 10th newsletter.

The top 5:

  1. “What Teachers Want You To Know: A Note to School Administrators” by Jennifer Gonzalez (from the “Cult of Pedagogy” fame) is a great reminder to all principals of what should be important. You can’t read this and NOT change one thing you do tomorrow.
  2. “In Praise of Finding Life’s Balance” by David Brooks (New York Times) is not your typical work/life balance argument. Brooks argues that we are in a crisis of victimhood these days and we need to understand and confront it.
  3. “Leaders Need to Slow Down to Speed Up” is a great blog about the need for pause and reflection. It echoes Harry Kraemer’s argument that we often confuse activity with productivity.
  4. “How Filter Bubbles Distort Reality” by Shane Parrish (Farnam Street Blog) is an interesting read about how we can surround ourself with like-minded thinkers to confirm our own biases.
  5. “How to Be a Strategic Leader” was one of the most influential articles I read in the past year. We often talk about the need for strategic leadership but we rarely talk about HOW.
