Episode 67: Out of Isolation into a Groove

source: beerandjoysticks.com
In this episode, Jessica and Spike discuss aspects of their new book Breaking Out of Isolation: Becoming a Connected School Leader available through Corwin Press. They start off with a big congratulations to their co-host Theresa Stager who recently finished the Chicago Half Marathon!

Jessica and Spike had a focused discussion about the aspects of isolation that lead them to write the book. Basically, the more you become connected, you increase your chance of becoming isolated... it is a modern day conundrum.

The PrincipalPLN crew talked about how they really began to encourage each other to establish, and more importantly, maintain a work/life balance. They are really eager to discuss this because they are currently working on ideas to expand this concept (stay tuned).

A couple of great articles to read (in addition to our book) on isolation include:

We also mentioned the book ‘Mindful School Leader ‘by Kirstin Olson and Valerie Brown.

Be sure to check out the companion website to the book for all of their resources.

Thanks for tuning in and connecting!
