Taking Care of Others While Taking Care of You | Inside the Principal’s Office

As leaders, we often spend our time worrying about the well-being of our staff, students, and community – but this worry can often come at the expense of our own own mental health and wellness. How can leaders strike the right balance and take care of others while also being cognizant of their own wellness?

This episode features co-hosts Michael McWilliams (Principal, Savannah Elementary) and Charles Williams (Principal, Plato Learning Academy) and guests Dr. Karla Peña (Principal, Anita T. Dovalina Elementary School) and Frank Rudnesky, Ed.D (Leadership Coach, Author, Consultant).
