“Everyone wins when a leader gets better.”
I had to reflect and consider how I was really investing in myself. I didn’t like what I saw in the mirror. At that point I was at a crossroads: throw a permanent pity party and point fingers at the district not developing my leadership skills or take ownership of my journey. I chose the latter.
So in 2015, I launched my category-defining leadership conversation podcast: Better Leaders Better Schools. I figured if I talked to leaders more experienced and wiser than I was, then I would grow tremendously. I was right and I didn’t want to keep that to myself so I distributed the podcast for free online.
In 2016, I joined my mentor’s mastermind — Iron Sharpens Iron. My life transformed both personally and professionally in such profound ways I had my second epiphany: who is doing this for school leaders?
I launched my first mastermind for school admin in the spring of 2016 with 7 heroic leaders. By 2019 our community includes 60+ leaders from around the world.
