Showing Real Leadership

0 Flares 0 Flares ×

In April and May I wrote about the first two words in our new motto. I wrote about focusing on students and about being in service to others. The third installment of the trilogy is a bit more difficult. Understand that I don’t believe a problem exists that doesn’t have a solution. To use a Star Trek reference (yes, I’m a nerd), I simply don’t believe in the Kobayashi Maru scenario. That fictional no-win/no-solutions scenario is supposed to test leadership, decisiveness and judgment. Captain Kirk goes through the test twice and fails to find a solution. Before his third time to take the test he hacks the computer and reprograms it so he can solve the problem.

I want Region 10 to show that kind of leadership. When a school or an educator asks us for help, I want us to provide the solution they are seeking. And if the solution doesn’t exist, then I want us to create it, borrow it, steal it, or hack and reprogram it. We need to be passionate about our work and serious about finding the solution that’s needed.

Students, Service, Solutions
