This is the second in a series of seminar notes that I’m blogging: good talks I attended while at NAESP in San Antonio.
Before I begin this one, here are all four:
- Eric Cupp: touching hearts, changing minds
- Christine Todd Whitman: on leadership
- Jon Gordon: the energy addict
- Glenda Hatchett: a promise to keep
Christine Whitman is a former governor of New Jersey and EPA administrator. She also worked as an ESL teacher early in her career.
A couple of notes I made during her speech:
“The best leaders are leaders because they want to do something, not because they want to be something.”
On knowing what’s going on
“Get out of the office!”
