One Word for 2015

I must admit I was intrigued by this tweet when I saw it, and I have been mulling over the notion of picking ‘a word’ to focus my 2015 efforts.

In considering this, I recognized that actually getting possible choices down to just one word would indeed be a challenge. I began to think about short phases, pairs of words with dashes or underscores linking them to one.  Well,  you-get- the_ picture.

Knowing this was the open mic discussion topic for OSSEMOOC tonight, I had settled on “model” as my word.  I think it is important to model what you seek.  Some key elements on my list include:

  • connected leading & learning
  • listening
  • seeking understanding and
  • problem solving to name a few.

This morning at our system leaders meeting we watched this TED Talk by Onora O’Neill

to kick off a discussion about deepening our understanding of trust. This topic seemed to solidify my choice to model.  Add trust to the list.

I have settled on and shared my word: “model”.   What is your word? Please share!
