Leading and Caring for Yourself and Your Team

Keith McCurdy encourages us to implement wise practices for caring for ourselves and our team.

Running a school in 2020 can feel like signing up to run a marathon and then being informed during mile 25 of 26 that one is only half way done! School has started back but leaders are dealing with anything but normal. The ongoing demands and expectations placed on those who lead is unprecedented. Keith offers proven best practices for wisely leading without burning out and having reserves for your school team and your family.
