Regardless of whether you feel any different, your role within the school has changed. You are now the President of the PTO, with a capital P. Other parents will be looking to you for answers, advice, guidance, and support. That can be a little daunting, especially if this is new territory for you. Talk to friends who have been in similar positions, whether in a PTO or in other volunteer groups. You’ll find that good leaders are confident but not dictatorial. They listen to and encourage others. Good leaders take risks and take responsibility. Good leaders recognize their own weaknesses and welcome the support of others whose skills complement their own. They celebrate success with everyone who deserves recognition. Good leaders build teams, not empires.
