The “X” Factor

I had a really interesting chat with someone last week who asked me to imagine the optimum type of educational leader. In order to give the person some form I used “X” to represent the person.

What was fascinating was that this technique enabled me to describe some key leadership and management behaviours which I probably wouldn’t have identified were I not to have adopted this perspective. 

What I have decided to do over the next few months is to imagine and explain “X’s” behaviour. Watch this space.
