What is your story? Do not impress people with data. Data is garbage to those who do not understand. Those who can make sense of data have the power to inform us. They do not just see numbers, they see patterns and they can tell us what these patterns mean.
This is why we make teachers those who can interpret data for us.
And we make leaders of those who can see the big idea from data. They do not see just numbers and words and pictures — they see the story.
Our problem is not information overload. Believe me, we have not consume much information yet. Our problem as leaders lies in our ability to find the big idea – and tell our stories.
