The best leaders take little openings and create space for those they lead. They find the smallest cracks of opportunity and create a path that was not there before. They shape the land. They find a way. Hacking leadership is about finding innovative solutions to issues that have plagued the system for years, and implementing them tomorrow. The focus is on practical application. We all know the problems exist, but knowledge of problems does not make our daily life in schools easier. Utilizing the tools in Hacking Leadership will allow you and your team to find the openings and create space for those you lead. Space to learn. Space to teach. Space to thrive.

Quick Hits that Help you get Ready
I saw him recently speak at an event, and the podcast reinforces the message easy and simple chunks that I can listen to on my way to work. It is inspiring for both teachers and students alike!
Great Podcast - Stumbled upon through Twitter
I really like the format. Casual, relative leadership conversations.
Another Way to Connect
I always learn from Tony and Joe on Twitter. Now I learn from their podcast. I appreciate when I can follow live on Blab but enjoy in this day and age of so much digital word, hearing nuance of voice, banter, and laughter. It's a great way as an educator to stay connected.
