Seven Kinds of Smart…..

Dr. Armstrong’s “Seven Kinds of Smart” wrote, researched and developed these approaches to teaching and learning. He believes a person is unique and has uniquely different ways of learning.

Growing Into Leadership

People aren’t born into leadership positions. We usually start in the trenches, as the doers. We earn the right to lead the projects and the vision by doing the work itself, and doing it well. Because the hardest part of learning to lead well is letting go of the execution, the very thing that earned us our spot at the head of the team, and entrusting others with the building and construction.
