They don’t come from a book. I am to blame for them!

11 CommitmentCommitment

12  A good leader is committed to the organization  You also must be committed to fulfilling your responsibilities to the organization  Being selected to an office is an honor, but does require work

13 The result of not being committed! The same thing could happen to your organization if you are not committed.



16  I wore hand-me-down clothes my well to-do cousin in Austin outgrew  Didn’t cause any problems in school  Made pretty good grades  Was not a member of the in-crowd  I was pretty much invisible until……

25  Barbara – Family & Consumer Science Teacher  Ohio State


27 The Moonwatchers – William S. Phillips

28 1. Leaders are committed! 2. But the BIG point (the subliminal message) is that CTE is much more than preparing students for careers—it is about changing lives.  Remember that—you are in the business of changing lives

29  “There's a difference between interest and commitment. When you're interested in doing something, you do it only when circumstance permit. When you're committed to something, you accept no excuses, only results.” A leader must be committed to the profession and to the organization!

30 Compassion/CareCompassion/Care

31  Leaders work with people  People have feelings, egos and emotions  People do not always make decisions based on logic A good leader will remember the above and act accordingly


33  How to Win Friends and Influence People (every leader should read this book)

34  Don't criticize, condemn or complain.  Give honest and sincere appreciation.  Arouse in the other person an eager want.

35  Become genuinely interested in other people.  Smile.  Remember that a person's name is to that person the sweetest and most important sound in any language.  Be a good listener. Encourage others to talk about themselves.  Talk in terms of the other person's interests.  Make the other person feel important – and do it sincerely.

36  Win people to your way of thinking  12 chapters  Be a Leader: How to Change People Without Giving Offense or Arousing Resentment  9 chapters

37  “People don’t care how much you know, until they know how much you care!” John Maxwell This applies to you and the people in your organization (and it works with students in the classroom too)

38  “People follow people who genuinely care about others” Tim Peters

39 ComprehensionComprehension

40  A leader does his/her homework  A leader doesn’t fly by the seat of his/her pants  A leader spends time studying, reading and collecting information  A leader truly comprehend the issues and problems

41  “Genius is one percent inspiration, ninety-nine percent perspiration” Thomas Edison  Likewise, much of the success of a leader is the result of intensive study and comprehending the issues and problems; not just smiling and waving at people.  Leadership is hard work and the underpinning for leadership (studying and comprehending) often occurs outside of the spotlight.

42  “By failing to prepare, you are preparing to fail.”

43  “We must be silent before we can listen. We must listen before we can learn. We must learn before we can prepare. We must prepare before we can serve. We must serve before we can lead.”

44 CommunicationCommunication

45  A good leader constantly shares information.  Whether the news is good or bad  You don’t keep people in the dark!

46  “Communication is the real work of leadership.”

47  Most people don't listen with the intent to understand. They listen with the intent to reply. They filter everything through their own paradigm and experiences, so that what they hear may not be what you said – Mark Scureman

48  Leaders need a vision for what is to be accomplished, goals, and mission  It is imperative this be communicated to everyone within (and even outside) the organization

49  People assume the worst  People speculate  People do not feel they are trusted  People feel undervalued  Rumors start


51 ConsensusConsensus

52  When decisions have to be made, involve all those affected by  Sharing information  Showing compassion  Doing your homework (comprehension)  Soliciting their input  And then work diligently and attempt to reach consensus

53  “How important is employee buy-in? When an employee buys into your mission, they become a force for driving your mission. When an employee doesn't buy in, they are working against you and your mission.” Joseph Byrd

54  “A genuine leader is not a searcher for consensus but a molder of consensus.”

55 ConsultationConsultation

56  If consensus can not be achieved, then all parties who may be impacted should be consulted.  One may not always be in agreement with the decision, but at least they know they have been heard.

57  The leader of the past knew how to tell. The leader of the future will know how to ask – Peter Drucker

58 CourageCourage

59  There are times when the leader must be willing to make difficult decisions  This often takes courage  Hopefully this will be after going up the pyramid  However, if time or circumstances dictate that a decision be made, the leader must have the courage to make a decision

60  You will never do anything in this world without courage. It is the greatest quality of the mind next to honor. Socrates

61  How far would Moses have gone if he had taken a poll in Egypt? What would Jesus Christ have preached if he had taken a poll in the land of Israel? What would have happened to the Reformation if Martin Luther had taken a poll? It isn't polls or public opinion of the moment that counts. It's right and wrong and leadership. Harry Truman

62 Leaders possess courage!

63 Compliment/Congratulate/CelebrateCompliment/Congratulate/Celebrate

64  Compliment, Congratulate and Celebrate  Be quick to compliment and congratulate others for good work – we all love praise and recognition ▪ This will make the other person want to work even harder  Look for excuses to celebrate the accomplishments of others
