5 Blogs that Can Help You be a Better School Leader, Pt. 2

This is the second installment of my blogs to follow entries. These are five blogs that I follow in my Feedly account that I find to be very useful as a school administrator. Check them out. And leave me a comment suggesting any blogs that you know about that are worth following.

Michael Hyatt’s Intentional Leadership (www.michaelhyatt.com)

Michael Wyatt is a best-selling author. His blog covers a wide variety of leadership topics. They include personal development, leadership and productivity.His blogs are always thought-provoking. I enjoy them because they give me ideas on how I can be a better leader.

Leadership Freak (www.leadershipfreak.wordpress.com)

This blog is written by a man named Dan Rockwell. He is listed in the top 50 Leadership experts by Inc. His blog shares t he leadership lessons over a career that includes two businesses, consulting work for Penn State University and a leadership coach. Not specifically an education blog, but the posts are worth reading for leaders at any

 A Principals Reflections (www.esheninger.blogspot.com)

This is the official blog for Eric Sheninger. I have had the pleasure to meet and hear him speak several times. I have never met a more forward thinking cutting edge school administrator. If you can’t get to hear him speak, you need to at least follow this blog.

Technology Tidbits: Thoughts of a Cyber Hero (www.cyber-kap.blogspot.com)

This is a great site to gather resources for your staff. In my weekly e-mail to my staff, I always include a Tech Tip of the Week. I get many of my tips from this website. There are tons of resources that you can share with your teachers to help increase the integration of technology into your instruction.

Little Things Matter (www.littlethingsmatter.com)

Full disclosure, I discovered t his site as I was finishing this post. This site is now a part of my daily feed. The blog covers a variety of skills that are critical to leaders. There are posts on listening skills, ways to make people feel good and personal accountability. The them is “Little Things Matter”, which I love. Worth the follow.

What am I missing? Give some more blogs to add to my list. Leave me a comment and give some ideas for my daily feed.

Make this week ridiculously awesome.
