Core Values+Passion+Purpose = My Leadership Blue Print

Leadership has several different meanings based on the person defining it.  It is not a "one size fit all" concept.  It is a concept that is tailored to fit the needs of the climate that it is being applied to.  I define leadership as a course of action by which one person encourages, motivates, inspires, and influences a group of individuals in the obtainment of common goals while nuturing and empowering future leaders.

Core Values:

Accountability:being responsible for actions that influence the lives of those I touch.

Efficiency: being efficient and effective in my approach to providing the best idea, strategy and/or solution that will assist the team/unit to achieve set goals.

Empowerment: empowering others to take initiative and give their very best.

Integrity: always act with honesty and integrity without comprising the truth.

Respect: giving due respect to self and others while maintaining an environmental culture of teamwork and growth.

Passion:

The energy and emotion that drives my desire to be an effective innovative leader that assist others realize their potential.

Purpose:

My purpose is to express my core values of accountability, efficiency, empowerment, integrity, and respect through the work that I do with my students and my love of establishing opportunities to build and empower others.
