How about this as a self-reflection activity to do in your head or possibly even with your colleagues…
In regard to change:
Are you a sailboat… do you easily go with the latest trend and go with the flow so to speak? It doesn’t take much to get you moving. You welcome and look forward to change.
Are you a tugboat… do you take things slowly and do you try to be methodical in your approach? You like precision and intentionality and you want to know pretty clearly where you are headed. You want to understand change.
Are you an anchor… it takes quite a lot of time and energy to get you moving. You fear and resist change.
So, which are you? Or, are you something not on this list?
I'd like to thank Steven Shaw for the inspiration behind this post:
Teachers! Are you a sailboat, a tugboat, or an anchor? Do you embrace change or resists it? #itefaop pic.twitter.com/BoxN4LGlMQ— Steven Shaw (@mr_sshaw) April 23, 2015
