I recently attended the Boston Tech Forum- a truly excellent conference! It was a day that left me very inspired and excited about all that technology has to offer, but also extremely humbled and motivated to do more! Being in the presence of so many intelligent and innovative thinkers, I kept wondering how these people had been able to transcend what is ‘typical’ tech use and move their districts to ‘the next level’.
What does it take to be a transformational leader? Is it having the creativity, insight, and knowledge to develop an innovative vision and the force of personality to bring people along with you or is it more? Where do money, resources, and time figure into the equation? And what about culture…is a program or practice that is innovative and effective for one school going to be meaningful for another?
All in all, the conference has stirred a certain restlessness in me and a heightened desire to learn more, do more, and improve my leadership skills.
