A new season brings with it changes! So what is next? Where do we go from here? It is April and a new season is fast approaching so what is next?
In one of my principal groups, some are discussing interviewing for new positions and the possibilities of moving to the next leadership level. What kinds of things do they need to know to prepare for the interviews? Another group is discussing issues they are facing with multiple conflicts within their buildings, toxic cultures, parent conflicts, how to provide professional development with staff to address student issues better, and the list continues.
Prepare for Next
Everything we do today prepares for what we do next! This is how our lives work each day. We wake up in the morning and constantly prepare for what is next. You get dressed to prepare to go out. You check the weather to know how to dress. You check to see what you need before you leave. Can you think of all the things you do to prepare for what is next?
Each week we make a list of the items we need to buy at the grocery store to prepare our meals for the coming week. I have friends who meal prep and prepare meals ahead of time. There is a great deal of preparation in our day-to-day life. Why do we find difficulties in preparing in other aspects impacting our lives?
How are we unprepared?
We are not prepared for the situations we find ourselves in today. How did we get here? Why are we not prepared? Where are we going from here? When will we see things improve?
What are your thoughts? I invite you to join the conversation on how to prepare. What’s next? Where are we going from here?
