The Reflection Pool

Top Three Posts of 2017

I like to do a little roundup of which posts generated the most traffic each year. It’s always interesting, a little like my #bestnine on Instagram.  What others like best is not always what I thought.

Here are the top three of 2017.

My Leadership Inquiry: the new Problem of Practice 

Thanks to the work of Steven Katz and Lisa Ain Dack, as described in The Intelligent, Responsive Leader, I describe my own leadership inquiry as I work to become a better leader.

A Simple and Powerful Leadership Truth

This was an insight for me, and may be for others too?  I try to keep it in mind every day.

Let’s Have Classrooms Full of Books!

Inspired by visits to classrooms and also the work of Pernille Ripp, a danish-american educator.

What about you – do your year end reflections include a “best of” list?

I thought you might like to know which posts gained the most readers this past year.  I found this interesting, because I don’t necessarily think these are my best posts. While there are many articles out there about how to generate more traffic to your blog and about “click bait”, I’m not one to focus on that. This blog is about my thinking and learning and my attempts to make sense of both.

But these three posts somehow spoke to people. I’d love to hear your thoughts about why they generated the most views. Happy reading!
