When I’m working with my team or with other principals, I often have them share with me one conversation they need to have that they have put off (or even dread), whether it’s something they need to discuss with another individual, the staff, or the entire campus. Then I ask them to reflect on why that conversation hasn’t happened. Knee-jerk reactions abound: “I’m too busy,” or “It won’t help anyway,” or “It’s not worth the political capital.”
I sit silent. Before long, they realize there simply is no good reason why the conversation has not yet happened.
