This short video reminded me of the importance of building relationships at the start of a school year. This is particularly applicable to me as I start work in a new role. We can be so goal driven that we focus on getting the job done at the cost of building relationships. Building relationships at the start pays greater dividends in the end. We live in a society that is so goal driven and so focused on the items on the check list. It’s time to slow down and remember we are working with people – our adult colleagues and our children.
