We Have the Power to Impact Our Future, and We’re Doing Something About It – Join Us

Welcome to TheSchoolHouse302 where it’s our job to help you lead better and grow faster. Leadership might be complex but it doesn’t have to be complicated. Our models for leadership are simple and applicable in any organization…public, private, big, or small. 

Here’s how you can enjoy the site. Each month, we start with a new leadership model built on the core tenements of leadership and based on both research and evidence from practice. There are several parts to the leadership curriculum we serve. This guide may help you gain clarity on how and where to get the most value from us:

#TSH302: Our Central Blog

Our blog is posted during the first week of the month under #SH302 so that you can find it on Twitter, etc. Next, during the second and third weeks of the month, you get our ReadThisSeries and our OneThingSeries, posted as #readthisseries and #onethingseries. 


In our ReadThisSeries, we recommend the best books to read on the topic for that month. We always recommend three because we know that leaders are readers. 


In our OneThingSeries, we conduct a short-form 20-30 minute leadership podcast with a great leader, author, researcher, professor, or otherwise top thought leader on the topic for the month. 


Last, you get our Review&Reflect (under #review&reflect) to wrap up the month so that you can take a look back to take a step forward with our reflection questions. 

Our content provides a leadership curriculum for anyone who aspires to lead better and grow faster so that you can serve others better. We hope you’ll connect with our amazing audience by following, commenting, and liking our work.

And, as always, you can contact us for professional development on our leadership models or to recommend a topic for the blog, a book for our #readthisseries, or guest for our podcasts.
