1. Focus on how your team members feel about what they are doing even more than what they are doing. Perception is reality. Do you care more about being RIGHT, or about the relationship? This one is a work in progress, I talked more about the grace needed in leadership here.
  2. Invest in relationships with your team members. I love hearing from other principals on how they personalize this for their people, so please share!


Bottom line, happiness is a choice. An important choice. A life changing choice.
