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.

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).
