Leadership, History, Insights: Battlefield and Naval Academy Perspectives Change the Way School Business Officials Lead
Verardi, Nicole
School Business Affairs, v75 n1 p30-32 Jan 2009
More than 40 school business officials honed their skills as leaders in education by participating in the 2008 Eagle Institute held July 31-August 1 in Annapolis, Maryland. Association of School Business Officials International's (ASBO) Eagle Institute is a tremendous learning forum to foster growth among rising leaders in public education. Led by Jeff McCausland, this group of esteemed professionals and emerging leaders began with Leadership 101, exploring what it means to be a leader. Then, attendees traveled to the Antietam Battlefield in Mary land to experience September 17, 1862, the bloodiest day in American history. Colonel Tom Vossler, U.S. Army (Ret.), brought to life the thunderous cannons, smoky air, and bravery of the day, while McCausland related the leadership challenges to the everyday work of school business officials. In this article, the author describes some lessons from the battlefield and discusses leadership from a naval perspective. She also discusses how battlefield and naval academy perspectives change the way school business officials lead.
