“ There's nobody that's going to help you move ahead in your leadership and as a school leader than the people that you're working with. And if you try to pretend that you're something that you're not, when everybody is giving you feedback that you're not doing what they hoped that you would be doing, you're going to be ground into the halt over time because people will just start to disconnect. And that is part of the management of trust.”
