“If you’re gonna lead men, you got to know them.” Mike Tomlin, Head Coach of the Pittsburg Stealers
Mike Tomlin spoke the words above on an episode of The Pivot podcast. During the episode, he shared a lot about his values and approach to leading men in the NFL. His words continue to resonate with me as I write this blog. I am grateful for the opportunity to create and curate safe, rich learning spaces for Black Male Educators. Professional learning spaces where we, Black Male Educators, representing all experience levels, ages, positions, nationalities and opinions can:
- Embrace our Blackness;
- Grow alongside high-caliber peers; and
- Ignite our fire for leadership.
In this month’s video, I share a little bit about all the strategizing and planning work my team and I have been doing to get ready for continued success and growth in 2023. Recently, while editing the content for the launch of the BMEsTalk 2023 Leadership Development Series, my team dropped this question on me:
“What if you could evolve on a personal level and learn from the passion and collective wisdom of Black Male Educators like you?”
Well…I am excitedly humble to share that this is no longer a “what-if”.
BMEsTalk has made it a reality!
