In this episode I interview Dan White. Dan has been a school counselor, a high school principal, and a school district superintendent. He is currently the superintendent of a large educational service agency. We talk mainly about decision making, specifically how not to let another person’s crisis become your crisis, using the time you have to make decisions, not hitting flies with sledgehammers, making thoughtful course corrections, and much more. This is likely the first of several episodes with Dan related to the nuts and bolts of leadership in general and school leadership specifically. The book Dan mentions towards the end of the episode is Time Present, Time Past by Bill Bradley. Enjoy this interview with Dan White.
In this episode I interview Dr. Stephanie Evergreen, author of the book Presenting Data Effectively. She has worked across all sectors, including education, teaching and coaching people about how to communicate using data. We talk about what great presenters do, tips on creating good slides, how your visuals should complement your personality when you present, and more. We barely scratch the surface in this interview, and you are going to want to hear more from Stephanie. Her website is http://stephanieevergreen.com/, and you can go there to learn more about her book, read her blog, and listen to her podcasts. Enjoy this interview with Dr. Stephanie Evergreen.
