leadership development

Many educational leaders have amazing goals for their learning spaces, but don’t know how to reach them effectively. How can we truly maximize our impact as leaders?

Today we are joined by Danny Bauer, who teaches us that as leaders, we can always level up. By creating a growth mindset-centered community, our leadership can flourish and we can bring our vision to life in the educational space. He inspires us to push ourselves and become better, step by step.

Listen in as we talk about how we can become better, experience true leadership development, and use our influence as powerful forces of good in our learning communities. As Danny explains, “Everybody wins when a leader gets better.”
