Here's my favorite quote from her essay:
Since transitioning out of the faculty and into administration, I've had to work hard to learn how to shut up and listen. My job, I've discovered, isn't to solve the problems. It's to understand them and then work with the people affected to come up with ways to solve the problems.
Every time I have tried to solve a problem when it's presented to me, I've created more problems. So I'm learning to talk to more people, to ask more questions, to listen to the answers.That's darn good advice for us all.
UPDATE (5/4/15): This post also gives good advice, as does this article.
