Episode 58: iPrincipal update with Mark Wilson

June 12, 2015
This is my third of an on-going conversation with Dr. Mark Wilson about his book in the works called iPrincipal. 

Check out our earlier talks at Episode 48 (The Introduction), and Episode 53 (Intentional). 

Also, you can find out more about Mark and his focus on leadership at Episode 8 as well as his website
The iPrincipal...today's fully prepared and highly effective principal is inspirational.

While the iPrincipal is expected to be an instructional leader (to be discussed in another episode), to lead effective schools, principals also need to be inspirational leaders.

Inspirational Principals excel in:

1. Seeing Connections
2. Sharing Ideas Clearly
3. Seeking Opportunities

I think that you will find Mark's thoughts engaging and thought provoking.
