Episode #6: What Did You Learn This Summer - Part 1

In this episode, we discuss the three altitudes of leadership and how important it is to not get bogged down on tasks and business at the 5’ level. We share about some tools we want to use to help us manage 5’ altitude business so we have more time to address the 5,000’ and 50,000’ needs of our schools. We discuss homework we will have for the summer and we ask listeners to share back their tools, tips and tricks via Twitter. Lastly, we talk about the multiplying effect that #PLN and relationships have on professional learning.
