“We like to think of our champions and idols as superheroes who were born different from us. We don’t like to think of them as relatively ordinary people who made themselves extraordinary.”Carol S. Dweck,  Mindset: The New Psychology of Success

The word “disposition” is defined as “a person’s inherent qualities of mind and character.”  In school leadership, we must be about advancing a reflective disposition, instilling the need to make our own learning visible, and developing a school culture that supports and shapes our learning.

School leaders are the most influential people in education.  When influencing former, current, and future school leaders, we must also develop a habit of thinking about our thinking.  By doing so, we are not only reviewing our practice, but also examining the processes we use or do not use to help us become “extraordinary.”
