Christine Todd Whitman: Leadership

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:

  1. Eric Cupp: touching hearts, changing minds
  2. Christine Todd Whitman: on leadership
  3. Jon Gordon: the energy addict
  4. 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:

On leadership
“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!”
