    Danny’s Leadership Journey

    Innovative, Story Teller

    Dislikes the phrase, “What’s best for kids”

    Based on one's own opinion

    Don’t use data

    Ruckus Makers do school differently 

    What shift do you want to make?

    Better Leaders, Better Schools Motto: 

    “When you are able to show up AUTHENTICALLY and experience BELONGING with a group of trusted peers, you can be CHALLENGED to take your leadership to the next level.”

    Current Leadership struggle/opportunity 

    What’s Next: District-level support 


    I’m hopeful that there are more good guys than bad guys.

    The map is not the territory 

    Calm in the Chaos

    The Principal Leadership Lab 2.0, with Cindy Bailey

    The Principal Leadership Lab 2.0, with Cindy Bailey

    Cindy Bailey, Dean of Northeast Wisconsin Tech College, sits down with Jeff & Adam, on The Principal Leadership Lab 2.0. 

    Some key highlights shared with us: 

    What you start with doesn’t have to be the ending.
    Pay attention to the doors, because there are opportunities on the other side.
    Always wanted to be on the sidelines, but made a shift.
    Worked with a trucking company to share the business with HS students….eventually led to the UW system despite not having the necessary credentials.
    The campus dean took a gamble on Cindy and her hunger for learning.
    Lots of preparation for her current role, lot of influences

Great discussion

I have enjoyed this podcast. Keep it rolling gentlemen! The dialogue, which is often unscripted, is exactly what I’m looking for as a fellow educator and admin. I appreciate the viewpoints of leaders in both rural and urban settings!
