Aside: Another perspective for your consideration. Some times, no amount of advice is good enough to get you through an unwholesome situation. "Do you really want to work with a crazy "leader?" The answer is, "Heck, NO!" Leave, go be happy somewhere else and let the sycophants hang around and wonder, "Why did we persist in this folly?" What's even worse is school boards that endorse a superintendent who looks good while destroying the people. For me, that's the measure of success...an organization that nurtures its people (faculty, students) succeeds, while an organization that beats people up because they're not dancing to a new tune played to six-shooters popping off at their feet, will not. Over time, I've learned it's better to shake the dust off your feet and keep moving! It's biblical advice!
