The starting point of all achievement is desire. Weak desire brings weak results. – Napoleon Hill
The vision of the Hilliard City School District is to prepare every student to be Ready for Tomorrow. Ready for Tomorrow is personal . . . every student that walks across that stage and receives a Hilliard diploma must be prepared for success. This is our desire; we maximize the skills and knowledge for each individual student. We build these skills and cultivate a growth mindset in each and every student. We push ourselves, we encourage each student, to the edge of our abilities . . . and then we move past our edge.
As leaders, we know the members of our team with strong desire for success. We know those with passion, who cultivate alignment, and who share our passion for success. We also know those who bring a weaker desire . . . those for whom our passion is simply a job. Our calling – our opportunities – is to inspire a greater desire for those on our team. Our challenge is to find the courage to intervene when needed – and potentially make changes when necessary. One arrow out of alignment, one negative voice distracting our efforts, is too many. We can’t fear leadership – we must embrace it.
