The First Staff Meeting of the School Year


Today’s podcast is the third episode of our special summer series!

I share all about how to start off the new school year on the right foot

And how this will set up your school for excellence.

As a school leader, you don’t want to overload your staff with content,

So I walk you through why you need to break it down into segments.

In today’s episode, I share a segment of a training that took place inside our Director’s Inner Circle & Owner’s HQ flagship program.
