If you put good people in bad systems, you get bad results. You have to water the flowers you want to grow. – Stephen Covey
We talk a lot about leadership and culture in the Hilliard School District. We have been intentional in cultivating the environment we desire. This work isn’t easy; this work isn’t process driven. We do what we do because we know that leadership – that building trusting, honest relationships is the only true way to earn results.
Success demands both a system focused on empowerment and accountability AND engaged, talented people in the system. There is no easy way to get this done. We are all required to do the work, to commit to each other, and to serve with purpose and passion.
