Center for Diversity Leadership: Coffee and Cultural Conversations

Theodore Roosevelt said, “Nobody cares how much you know, until they know how much you care.” Strong leaders understand that to create a culture of excellence, they must cultivate and sustain strong relationships that are built on trust. A leader who shows empathy understands and shares the feelings of their school community. Empathy allows us to create bonds of trust and gives us insight into what our stakeholders are feeling and thinking, which ultimately helps us inform our decisions as school leaders. On Saturday, Jan. 15 at 11 a.m. ET, Center for Diversity Leadership fellows Dr. Ryan Daniel and Dr. Edgardo Castro will lead a deep dive conversation on Twitter into how leaders can make empathy a part of their leadership practices. Follow #naespCDL to take part.
