Ethical leaders appreciate that the world is interdependent. They make constant decisions that allow them to be resilient to pressures by holding on to the ethical behaviors required to advocate for student, teachers and parents. Through ethical behaviours and applying fairness in decision making we commit to providing students with a fair learning environment that promotes excellence for all people.
With this frame of thought, I draw on my own capabilities to inform decision making process. These capabilities are skills, beliefs and capacities that are developed over the course of my life experience and are like seeds planted and shaped from my earliest discourses.
Dewey (1933) suggests that reflective thinking is the active, persistent and careful consideration of a belief, grounds that support that knowledge and the further conclusions to which that awareness leads. Likewise, intuitive connection is seeing the blind spots (Dyer, 2000) and working to address them before they become problematic. Procrastination can sabotage intuitive connection as I can allow myself to become sidetracked.
