Always have a backup plan! When things happen and something goes wrong it is important to have a backup plan. Do you have someone who can cover you when you are out? Do you have something available incase the technology goes down? Do you have a backup? When we rely on one person to do the job we can easily fall flat on our faces. As a future leader I will definitely reflect on this. What happens to the school when you need to be away? Does it have people in place to help keep it running? Do you have a system in place that keeps everyone accountable even when you aren’t there? What steps have you taken to be sure your professional development can go as planned if you get called away on an emergency? Do you have a backup plan?
