Great post. This may border on ways to stay humble, but this works for me:

Truly listen to ideas of others. If one of your teachers wants to try something, let them. Even if it something you do not think is necessary, encourage them to try it. (Of course, unless it is something that is not good for kids, etc...) I try every day to build leaders and we have to encourage them to lead!

Listening more than talking is one of the greatest things we can do as leaders and one of the hardest. As we learn and develop this skill, many of the other things that you describe also develop and we become much better at seeing things in a larger frame than what is just before us.
Thanks for the reminder to focus beyond myself and remember that humility is a strength and not a weakness!
