Pearls of Wisdom: Owning Success and Being Vulnerable

Pearls of Wisdom: Owning Success and Being Vulnerable


For over 30 years, international school leaders, teachers, and counselors have come together for PTC professional learning experiences.  Each day of every program begins with a 'pearl of wisdom', a 'nugget of knowledge', or a 'gem of inspiration' from one of the participants.  We are delighted to offer our readers around the world these powerful stories, insights, and strategies, all dedicated to our shared mission of ever more and better learning for our children.  

In her Pearl, Sylvia says it’s important to “own your successes, share your problems, never be afraid to expose yourself in front of the staff and be vulnerable.” She shares her experiences in hopes of demonstrating that you can gain respect by building trust with clear communication and focusing on the team over self.
