Tips for New Leaders

A recent blog caught my attention which looked like and is a good learning guide for new administrators, especially assistant principals who have been promoted in their own building. The blog, “25 Tips for Managing Your First Reports”  was written by Daniel McCarthy and while written for business managers, it has very appropriate lessons for school leaders. In fact, experienced school administrators as well could learn from the recommendations in this document.  Who knows, you may be aware of a superintendent who could/should review these ideas?

You may access the blog at and click on Leadership at the top of the page.
