About the Virtual Leadership Series

Leading a thriving school shouldn't be so hard. Stop running from one emergency to the next. Come learn from author Jethro Jones as he helps school leaders find the actions needed to transform their schools so each student has an amazing experience. AWSP is excited to offer this virtual book study and discussion group hosted by author Jethro Jones and his bestselling leadership book, How To Be a Transformative Principal.

About the Author and Series Facilitator, Jethro Jones

For years, Jethro Jones struggled to turn around his school. In his first 2-3 years as principal, he was constantly under pressure, overwhelmed, and stretched way too thin. After researching dozens of books about leadership, productivity, and goal setting, he developed a method of transformative leadership that propelled him to being recognized as the 2017 Digital Principal of the Year by the NASSP. He then turned his learnings into books, an award winning podcast, and an annual event for leaders just like you.
