The responsibilities of principals, and all school leaders today, are increasingly complex. New challenges call for new initiatives and implementing new initiatives can be scary.

Therefore, now more than ever, we need to know how to manage our self-limiting fear. And the best way I know how is to turn fear into excitement.
