Permission to Struggle

For teams, it’s the fringe of conflict where creativity is found.

For individuals, it’s in the struggle where learning occurs.

However, no one wants to be embarrassed about a struggle. No one deserves to be shamed for a struggle. The struggle is not moral or ethical or worthy of any type of judgment. It’s merely a pathway.

In classrooms, students will not ask, but they need permission to struggle. The same is true for leading teachers.

  1. Give permission to struggle.
  2. Ask when and how to offer support.
  3. Watch discoveries unfold.
