From the NCSM President
Welcome to a World of Leadership Challenges and Opportunities this summer!
As you prepare for the opening of school in the fall, remember that NCSM has many new products and tools to make your work easier, effective and efficient. As leaders, we are in the people business and our job is to help others succeed. Be sure to visit the NSCM website to update your profile and renew your membership. The purpose of your leadership is to maximize people's strengths and minimize their weaknesses. Effective leaders employ the ABC's of leadership:
- Analyze the assets of your organization and build upon these.
- Become people focused and learn about the skills and attitudes of the people with whom you work.
- Connect talent with obvious needs.
If you are looking for leadership development for yourself and/or a team of leaders, consider the two NCSM Leadership Academies that are available this summer:
June 25-27, 2012 in Pittsburgh, PA and July 31-Aug 2, 2012 in Sonoma County, CA.
