NISL Face-to-Face Meeting


Network of Innovative School Leaders (NISL)

It is one of life's great ironies: schools are in the business of teaching and learning, yet they are terrible at learning from one another. If they ever discover how to do this, their future is assured. - Michael Fullan

Leadership is not a solo act; we need each other to share knowledge, skills and talent to effectively lead and improve our schools. Time spent collaborating with other Idaho school leaders will serve to enhance your leadership skills which will contribute to the success of every student. “Collaboration is a social imperative. Without it people can’t get extraordinary things done in organizations. (Kouzes @ Posner, 2003, p.22)
