After reflecting on many presentations and discussions about the idea of “Leading from the Middle”, I decided to create a short media presentation on my current thinking in this area.  I believe the concept of “Leading from the Middle” should be renamed and branded as “Learning from Your Middle”.  As shared in the video below, I believe your middle within a school district are the people closer to the student than you.  As we serve our middles, build strong learning connections and gather information, we ultimately help them accelerate the learning of all students.

Below is a presentation I gave in May 2014 that provides further explanation on the idea of building learning connections.
