ACTION STEPS


1. Choose a typical school situation or classroom event that would result in traditional discipline. In a meeting, use roleplay to show how the discipline situation could be turned in a discipleship opportunity.

2. Becoming a servant-leader is not a cliche. Make a list of specific instances where you could illustrate genuine servant-leadership.


Acts 15:22

Then the apostles and elders, with the whole church, decided to choose some of their own men and send them to Antioch with Paul and Barnabas. They chose Judas (called Barsabbas) and Silas, men who were leaders among the believers.

Leaders are Readers


Great leaders are readers. You might not like it, but it’s true.

If you are saying, “But I don’t like to read.” that is a lame excuse. Try telling that to the students in your school. It’s just what they want to hear. That will become their excuse of choice for ducking work
in any class that requires reading.

Look what happens when you read.

  • you model a positive habit to others
  • you might even relax a little bit
  • you are exposed to new and exciting ideas
  • your vocabulary and writing skills improve

Some administrators or other leaders have large bookcases filled with great books…all unread. How full would your shelves be if you could only put books there that you had read?

Reading an inspirational book gives you the credibility to suggest it to a colleague whose needs could be met by that particular author.

Caution – Revolutionary Ideas Ahead.

It can be a scary thought, but as you do an abundance of reading, ideas may pop into your mind that will stretch the comfort level of yourself and others. To turn those ideas into reality may mean that you will need to develop a level of courageous leadership that you have previously only envisioned, not attained.

Leaders are readers.

Well, the great ones are, especially if the things they read generate ideas and possibilities that, when instituted, may make their school a better place.

Don’t be afraid of reading. It could become addicting. It might even create visionary thoughts in your mind.

Who knows? Your school could become a better place.

Furthermore, as you read, you may become enthused to speak about new and mind-bending ideas. Or you might even be compelled to write your reactions and ideas for the general perusal of your colleagues.
