This keynote will explore the connection between school culture and successful school improvement.   Great strategies will not implement themselves.  The collective belief systems, values, and behaviors of the educators will have a major impact on the success or failure of your  journey.  Effective leadership is the catalyst to developing high performing schools and we will explore the strategies that inspire, enlighten, and push people to do great things for students as well as the strategies and behaviors that destroy momentum and productivity.
