Today's episode takes us back to the roots of the podcast. Yes, a solo episode has returned to the lineup and I'm talking about intentional leadership.

Through this episode, I recap our episodes 4-8, each of which had a guest and a common theme of being intentional about something in their leadership. From Alex Carter (ep 4) we were reminded to simplify and focus, something that brought me back to work done during the change of instructional leadership that was critical to our school and district's successes. Zandra Galvan (ep 5) shared intentional backward design in the experience every student has in Greenfield School District (CA). Wade Stanford from Westwood ISD (TX) shared his intentional work around moving from silos to collaboration (ep 6), while Eric Lillis talked about leading from a relationship-focused perspective in episode 7. Finally, Robert Breyer shared with us the intentional work needed to set ourselves up for success at the interview table when Taking the Leap into school administration.

Now is the time! Leadership teams are being reorganized across the US this spring. New members will be replacing members who are retiring or moving on to another role. New administrators will be leaping out of the classroom and into leadership for the very first time. Let's be INTENTIONAL with the development of our leadership teams for next year.

High Performance Leadership Teams is designed to align each member of the new leadership team, to dig deep into the core values of the team, and to ultimately identify and plan the goals for the upcoming year. I would love to work with you and your team to help you achieve that High Performance that you are looking for, that your school and district deserve.

Final thought for this set of show notes - folks, as educators we are changing the world and we do that one conversation at a time.
