The Tao says, when you are on top of a mountain, you can see a the change of weather coming and prepare yourself accordingly. Positioning is key.
If you are aspiring to become a principal or if you are currently in the role of a school administrator, chances are you'll likely want to move ahead one day, either in a new position or embark on a challenging professional initiative.
Whatever the case may be, it`s critical to embrace the way of the Tao and anticipate this change by positioning yourself.
But how do you position yourself for change? What follows are some practices that have served me well in preparing for professional advancement and I hope they serve you as well.
-Building critical leadership skills (communication, copywriting, presentation design, social media marketing...)
-Seeking constructive feedback (don`t be afraid to ask for precisions and concrete examples)
-Nurturing your network (make it expansive, not only focused on education and think outside the box - use social media!)
-Learning something every day (with the help of audiobooks, podcasts, online courses...)
-Updating your LinkedIn profile and resume
What other ways would you recommend positioning yourself for the next step?
