Learn How To Create A High Quality Principal Entry Plan In Just 1 Hour

Build Leadership Momentum: How to Create the Perfect Principal Entry Plan

Despite what you may have heard, leadership is not about going to the dark side; it is very much an opportunity to build relationships, foster growth in students and adults, and collaborate with people so you can find your best ideas as a group…

This book provides you the space to consider what your actions will be for your first 90 days as a principal. It gives you the opportunity to think through who you want to be as a leader not just who you think you have to be as a leader.

I wrote this book because I realized that many school leaders start the school year without a solid plan.

Which means they are kind of planning to fail…

And it’s not their fault!

No one teaches them how to build a solid 90-day entry plan.

Until now.

Last summer I facilitated a 5-day training program on creating the perfect principal entry plan. It was a hit with leaders who experienced it.

The ideas I shared in the training are now in book form so even more leaders can start the year off with great momentum.

Here’s what John Unger, a principal in Arkansas, had to say about the Build Leadership Momentum approach:

“Lots of things will keep you up at night if you’re not organized. After learning from Danny how to create a principal entry plan, I can honestly say all that stress was gone.”

Imagine that.

A stress free start to the school year.

A solid plan that shows what to do for the first 90-days.

Clarity and focus are two beautiful things.

And best of all, my goal was to deliver a result to you in as few words as possible.

You can read about the framework and use the template in the book in about an hour of your time.

You’ll be off and running for the next school year…

That’s a pretty great promise for the cost of a book and an hour of your time.

Which is why my reputation is for over delivering.
