[caption id="attachment_2270" align="alignnone" width="1024"] 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.[/caption]
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!
