I must first look inside and discover my talents. I must use my strengths and work on my weaknesses to become a better person, better teacher, and a better leader. I must understand my style of leadership to inspire my students and colleagues. It's important to be flexible and differentiate my style when dealing with different type of students and colleagues. I must communicate with purpose and understand the why in everything I do. Understanding the why and preaching my cause is what makes me successful. I must believe in what you I am doing. I must make others see my passion and maybe light a spark in them. I must build up those around me to be their best. I must be reflective in my approach to self discovery. Think about what I are doing and why I am doing it. Sit back and listen carefully to others to understand their why. Don't be afraid to take a receive feedback so we can all grow stronger. Allow for autonomy, mastery, and purpose to make a difference in myself and those around me. Take my profession seriously, trust in myself and my ability and know that I am an expert in my field. Be willing to make mistakes and keep trying. Do the things that makes me uncomfortable, like making a movie or finger painting. Be willing to take risks and be there for others.
