Leadership and gratitude

Live Gratitude

This week I’ve heard a lot of what’s not happening, what isn’t working and what school leader clients don’t want.

This happens for all us doesn’t it? There’s always a problem to sort – an issue to fix.

Sometimes we can get into the familiar domain of impossibility. No! This shouldn’t be happening, we should have got the school results we wanted or staff should have responded differently or behaved exactly how we wanted.

That’s the expectation right?

In this realm can lie the domain of resignation, defeat, resistance and even despair.

What about what is happening, what IS working? AND how we can bring about our own willingness to step out of impossibility to create what we actually do want?

If we focus on this we get to practise courage, resilience, determination and most of all acknowledgement of ourselves, life and others just as they are.

There lies the domain of possibility, openness, creativity and most certainly joy.
