I really like this list. Two questions: (1) Are we providing our learners with the opportunity to develop these qualities? (2) Better yet… Do educators personally engage these qualities in their work….everyday? I know that I am painting with a broad brush here, but I would suggest we only have pockets of educators (teachers as well as leaders) that embrace these qualities.

If we want to make systemic change, we need to first change our individual mindsets. The never ending mission of leadership!
