My mission is to build better leaders

My name is Daniel Bauer and I help school leaders fight isolation and frustration via a leadership community in order to gain clarity and find solutions to their greatest challenges.

If you’re anything like me you might feel under-prepared for your current leadership role and most likely you feel isolated – but it doesn’t have to be that way.


The flagship podcast for ruckus makers in education
