Moving Beyond Greatness

by Gordon Taylor/Region 10 ESC Executive Director

I often think about what Region 10 will be like in the future. What new service will we offer a year from now that will completely change how we help schools? What will be up to in five years? In ten??

Along with a number of well-placed school administrators from our region and three of our board members, Region 10’s leadership team has embarked on a strategic planning process. We’ve just had our first meetings to discuss our purpose and values.

I told the group about hearing a radio interview in which a CEO talked about his company moving (to borrow the phrase made popular by author Jim Collins), from good to great… to IMPORTANT. That’s where I want Region 10 to be.

Every member of our Region 10 community will have the opportunity to participate in the strategic planning as it progresses this summer and into the fall. While I don’t know what we will look like in the future. I know we will always lead by serving.

I believe this strategic planning will set us up to be good, great, and eventually important as an organization. I’m excited that I’ll be along for that wonderful ride! I hope we can all get excited about that journey, too.
