January Mentoring Follow up and Follow through for Assistant/Associate Principals and Deans
Table teams shared strategies they had utilized to attain a better fit. We also created a visual representation of our current leadership-life fit as compared to our preferred leadership-life fit using a wheel of life model.
Three of our colleagues shared their processes for walk-through, observation, and evaluation. Be sure to check out the resources they shared:
