I use this online resource to gain insight, gather resources, and develop my leadership capacity. 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!
