Sit On a Nonprofit Board

The best leaders talk to leaders outside their field. Sit on a board of directors for at least one nonprofit, participate in a community leadership program, and literally get your community involved in your school.

Get out of the office, and don't gossip.

Don't be intimidated. My principal is scared of me, as I have more contacts with higher level community figures than she does. Her favorites can literally cheat on the state test and get away, why I look the wrong way at someone and get trouble. Why? She is afraid that I am going say something to a connection of the superintendent, and she will get fired. Sadly, I lived in her community (I am from 800 miles away) for less than two years and have had coffee with more civic and business leaders, and know who's who than she does - she grew up here.
