When my son was in second grade, I attended a parent-teacher conference at his school. The teacher shared with me a new system they were using to evaluate the growth and performance of the kids. As I glanced over the evaluation form it struck me that things don’t change all that much from second grade to the adult world when it comes to what matters most. The parameters they were evaluating for 7 year olds are much the same as the ones most organizations use to evaluate their leaders, whether they are written down or not. Take a look at the list below and think about whether your practice would be better off if the leaders in it evaluated themselves on these second grade criteria.
