It’s the Person, Not the Position

October 29, 2012

As I have mentioned our central office administrators are reading “First Break All the Rules, What the World’s Greatest Managers Do Differently” and discussing it at the start of our weekly meeting.  From the book this week we talked about career pathways, the benefits of non-linear movement, and of celebrating excellence at all levels of an organization.  Here is a video with Vince Forlenza, president and CEO of BD, the medical technology company about his career path:

The book also notes,

“Great managers envision a company where there are multiple routes toward respect and prestige…”

In education, we all have a role in helping our students succeed.  The key is making sure we respect all of the roles.
