Join A Mastermind
Welcome to the Mastermind, a world-class community of school leaders from around the world, ready to take your leadership to the next level.
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.
