What is Lead Simply?

Model. Connect. Involve. Model the behavior you want to see. Connect with the people you lead. Involve them as much as possible.

That's your framework for leadership – your simple, day-to-day, in-the-trenches formula for creating that special team of people that does important and meaningful work ... that cares to make things better ... continually ... every day.

Written by Sam Parker (bestselling author of 212° the extra degree® and Smile & Move®), Lead Simply is a no-fluff, no-parable, no-matrix call to fully embrace (and do) those simple things that can have the biggest impact on making things better.

Use it as a tool to inspire your school's leadership team and faculty.

Life is short. We're not here to fill or kill time. Lead Simply is your wake up call. Let's go to work.

Lead Simply™

Ways to use Lead Simply™

Lead Simply™ is a fresh and easily embraceable message that's helped thousands of schools and organizations focus on what's most important (and often missed) in creating a special team of people that's accountable to each other and does great work. And it sticks.

It's simple enough to kick-off or support an upcoming school year, semester, or event and deep enough to stand on its own as a theme or leadership team building message. You might even find it helpful as an on-boarding tool or as a first-read for new faculty and staff to set leadership expectations ("We believe it all begins by Leading Simply. Here's what we mean...").

Introduce. Discuss. Remind. Encourage.

This is how you help everyone be more engaged, motivated, and responsible to their work and the people around them (their colleagues, their students). Sharing the Lead Simply message can help by giving you a new way to illustrate what's important (modeling behaviors, connecting with people, involving them wherever you can).

You might start by handing out the book (a quick 30-minute read which means people will really read it) and then discussing it as a group. Then keep the message alive by handing out and/ or posting the fun reinforcement items (banners, posters, reminder cards, pens, etc.). If you'd like to go deeper with it, maybe one of our meeting packages would be the best fit for you. These include the inspiring video and/ or a PowerPoint® formatted presentation with a Leader's Guide (written by Sam, the author of Lead Simply) to help you deliver and discuss the material.
