Joe Sanfelippo, Joshua Stamper, Lead From Where You Are, Aspire to Lead, Aspire: The Leadership Development Podcast, Teach Better

School communities are full of people who have both the ability and desire to lead. Some lead without knowing it. Most lead without the recognition they deserve. Whether you lead in a classroom, department, building, or district, chances are you know how challenging it can be to identify and develop other strong leaders, and to grow the leadership capacity of your organization as a whole. This week’s guest, Dr. Joe Sanfelippo, shares how he made sure leaders around him knew their worth, helped them cultivate connections, and grew their confidence to help the whole team move forward together to thrive.

In this episode, we also discuss:

  • Amplifying the great things teachers are doing in the classroom
  • Being so good at your job, everyone will notice
  • And his upcoming book, “Lead From Where You Are”!
