Before the glut of leadership gurus today, there was this guy. – SCN Encourager

By Tom Page, SCN Founder | The Encourager

He’s wise.

Extremely experienced.

And certainly has proven himself to be open to change.
(albeit after a bit of ghostly mentoring…)

But nevertheless,

whatever it took for him to embrace a new personal paradigm,

ol’ Ebeneezer certainly has now set the bar pretty high, don’tcha think?

Dang it.

It’s one thing for me to not be living up to the standards of Mother Teresa, Nelson Mandela, or Gandhi.

I gave up that on that long ago.
(at about age two according to mom)

But Scrooge?!?


The man I see in the mirror every morning can’t even hold a candle to Scrooge?!?

(Heck, he doesn’t even produce a podcast!)

Oh well,

I guess it couldn’t hurt me to suck-it-up and try to up my game.

At least for the next few days anyway.

About the Author

Prior to launching SCN I was the communications director for Holland Public Schools in Holland, Michigan for 20 years. The challenges for in-the-trenches school communicators are many – and if I can help you in any way, give me a call. I'm a former teacher and I've managed more than 100 election campaigns of all types and sizes over the years. (I was even featured in the Wall Street Journal... a very, very slow news day, no doubt!) I created the School Communicators Network because I believe the noble purpose of education deserves the best marketing and PR possible. And there's a lot of talent and expertise we can tap into! I'm also convinced we can support each other while remaining human and having fun, too. You can reach me at
