Go Community!

Better Leaders Better Schools

Better Leaders Better Schools

This community is one of my favorite one-stop-shop tools to engage with other amazing school leaders. I use this online resource to gain insight, gather resources, and develop my leadership capacity.

The #1 Leadership Online community is generous and authentic, an antidote to the clutter and noise that other social media sites have become.

What makes this community different is that it is:

  • An investment, not free
  • A private community with the same goal
  • A conversation, not a variety of self-promoting presentations
  • Evergreen, not ephemeral
  • Focused on serving school leaders, not advertisers, companies, or investors

I highly recommend using Go! Community to enhance your leadership skills!

As we continue through this journey of distant learning, I wanted to bring you some content specific to our current struggle. Instead of asking one person, I asked many of my friends to share their insight and wisdom. Since I had so many submissions, I’m going to break this up into several short bonus episodes. I asked these amazing educators one question: what tips or strategies would you suggest during this unprecedented time? I hope their responses provide value and strength during your distant learning experience.
