Learning to Lead: Lessons From the Field

  • Julie Hobbs Education Consultant


In this article, the author recalls experiences from her career, and shares them as five lessons learned about leadership. She explains that a mentoring culture did not exist for her or others when she assumed various leadership roles in her school board, and she argues that possibilities exist for a strong mentoring culture now. The five lessons presented focus on caring and compassion, trust and risk-taking, listening, collaboration and shared governance, and facilitating and mentoring.
