Identify skills gaps (Surround yourself with
people who complement your areas of Improvement).
at the balance of your team and try to find people who complement each other,
says Roger Pope, principal of Kingsbridge
identify who I need for a particular role within a team and actively try and
recruit somebody with those characteristics. For example, when I first became a

A famous philosopher once said, "Education is the key to success and without it you will fail". I would like to go a step further and say that a successful school system is the foundation for excellent leadership, productive living, and the catalyst for growth in the community and business world. The best of the best would be attracted to our city, thus enhancing our resources, opportunities, economy and in essence the quality of life. As I have said on many occasions, the level of success of the school system equates with the level of success in the community at large because one cannot be successful without the other.
