What are the characteristics of a leader?
That is the question that Superintendent Kelly Sprinkles recently posed to members of his student advisory council for discussion. The question was prompted as part of the district’s on-going process of evaluating and refining it’s mission and vision of Inspiring Leaders and Changing Futures, One Child at a Time.
“For the past two years we have shared the vision of preparing students to be leaders; now is time for us to pause to see how well that mission is being received, understood, and achieved,” said Sprinkles.
Student members shared with Sprinkles a long list of different characteristics or attributes demonstrated by a leader. Student responses included someone with passion, not afraid to step up and step out, offers encouragement, believes in others, listener, has a vision, and someone who takes charge when no one else will.
