Renegade Leadership: A Simple Framework for Meaningful Change

Tuesday, March 14, 2017 @ 4:00 pm - 5:00 pm EDT

Renegade Leadership

Presented by Dr. Brad Gustafson, Principal, Greenwood Elementary School, MN
Sponsored by NAESP


If you attended the live session, you’ll be emailed a CE certificate within 24 hours of the webinar. If you view the recording and would like a CE certificate, join the NAESP Virtual Book Talks for Early Career School Principals community and go to the Webinar Archives folder to take the CE quiz.

In this webinar, Dr. Brad Gustafson hosts a virtual book talk on his book, Renegade Leadership. The first years in the principalship can be some of the most exciting and difficult years in education.  It’s imperative that new school leaders focus on what really matters during these foundational leadership years. Innovation is something that really matters, but it can be lost in the frenetic pace and steep learning curve of the principalship…until now. This virtual book talk provides a surprisingly simple framework for applying innovation to the great work already being done in schools. This is NOT a discussion about change for the sake of change. Renegade Leadership promises to empower principals with the tools and how-to support to create meaningful change in their schools.
