Another great episode Adam and Rick, thank you for the response to the last episode. Interesting idea Rick with the meet-and-greet program.

I really like Adam’s point about the half-forward flank. I wonder if the ‘great teacher’ can be a hindrance to overall school success? Is it possible that great schools actually produce the greatest teachers:

The problem with picking the right teacher is that there is no definitive means of finding such a person. This right teacher implies that we are fixed in everything that we do and think. In addition to this, the β€˜right’ teacher for today, may not be the β€˜right’ teacher for tomorrow. Another alternative is to provide the conditions for the right teacher to develop and grow.

In regards to leading a PLC and leadership in general, I think another way to think about that question is whether everyone has an optimal environment and team to foster as a leader? I agree about your point about people having certain characteristics being more beneficial, but if you know someone else has your back then it can make a world of difference.

I remember being told at University about the importance of finding the right school that fits with your beliefs, I think the same can go for leadership too.
