059: Systems that save leaders time with Kate Erickson

Do you use systems in your school? Do you even know what systems are? I have heard the term “systems” used frequently, but I never really quite understood what they were … As a result, I brought on the systems expert, Kate Erickson, to give some very practical advice on how to start systematizing your work as a school leader.
This show very well could be a game changer.
It is short, but filled with practical tips and resources. Kate defines systems as "saving time, and working more efficiently, and not recreating the wheel."
Throughout your day, how may repetitive tasks do you complete (e.g. email, financial approvals, observations, etc.)? If you were able to speed up time around all those tasks, how would you spend this abundance of new time?
