The Primary Role of a School Leader


The number one challenge for school leaders is that they don’t know what their number one challenge is. With all of the different roles that you play in your life, your energy is being diffused into so many places.

So how can you discover what your primary role is as a school leader, and develop a sustainable calendar that prioritizes the primary responsibility that you cannot delegate in your school?

Today, in episode 5 of the Schools of Excellence Podcast, I am teaching you what the primary responsibility of being a school leader is, that you cannot delegate to anyone else. 

We are going over:

  • What to prioritize in your calendar as a school leader.
  • What the #1 primary role that you need to play in your school is.
  • The importance of teacher relationships as a school leader.

Tune in by going to your favorite podcast app, and searching, “Schools of Excellence Podcast”.
