Hi Amy , Danielle, Mary, and Saretta!

I apologize for the tardiness of this message. I had a challenging and time-consuming university project to address on the Sunday after our Saturday class session.

In addition, this has been the first week of the academic year and the fall semester. For that matter, I have three meetings in Athens tomorrow, which may result in additional projects for me to address during the Labor Day weekend.

Thanks are offered for your responses to the prompts, which were offered, regarding the aspects and importance of a healthy school climate. You did well. In fact, I plan to incorporate your responses with the others for inclusion in the September 15 agenda and more discussion about school climate.

Regardless, I hope that you have a pleasant holiday weekend.

Until then, Bill

1.) Reasons why charm and shrewdness might and might not contribute to a healthy climate:

Charm might not contribute to healthy climate because not everyone appreciates or is affected by it.  Charm can be misconstrued for being disingenuous.  Charm can be healthy when used at the "right" times with the "right" people

Shrewdness (being analytical/intuitive) might not contribute to a healthy climate because it can be perceived as one passing judgment.

Charm and shrewdness can be healthy when used at the "right" times with the "right" people. It is situational. As a leader it is important to know your staff's personalities

2.) Challenges for maintaining openness with faculty:
There is a thin line between being open and honoring confidentiality. (Perhaps it's not a good idea to be a principal in a district where you work? It would definitely be a challenge.)

3.) Reasons why we would or would not want to provide leadership for a healthy environment.
Healthy climate is so very important. We think we would definitely want to provide leadership that promotes a healthy climate.  Healthy things flourish and thrive.
