Join the IPC

The Innovative Principals Circle (IPC) is all about amplifying, connecting, and lifting up innovative principals across the nation.  We recognize that leadership and innovation can be challenging, draining, and intimidating.  As a group, we want to help support educational leaders on their journey through this incredibly powerful work. On Nov. 14 at 7:00 p.m. ET, we will discuss chapters 1 and 2 in the book, It’s Your Ship: Management Techniques from the Best Damn Ship in the Navy by D. Michael Abrashoff.  Be sure to order your book now and join in the discussion.
