Think about a range of people widely considered to be leaders: Abraham Lincoln, Helen Keller, Mahatma Gandhi. One thing such leaders have in common is their role in making change happen. Through their actions, leaders manage to change what people believe and the actions they take, often in difficult conditions. And the lever they use to bring about change, at its root, is learning. Leaders help others understand a new set of data, accomplish a challenging goal, imagine a new possibility, or recognize the injustice of long-held beliefs. The leaders we would name in our field, school system, or local community do the very same. Some leaders promote learning — and, in turn, bring about change — by modeling the behaviors and beliefs they promote.
