If you are aspiring to become a principal or if you are currently in the role of a school administrator, chances are you'll likely want to move ahead one day, either in a new position or embark on a challenging professional initiative. ⁠

Whatever the case may be, it`s critical to embrace the way of the Tao and anticipate this change by positioning yourself. ⁠

But how do you position yourself for change? What follows are some practices that have served me well in preparing for professional advancement and I hope they serve you as well.⁠

-Building critical leadership skills (communication, copywriting, presentation design, social media marketing...)⁠
