Thriving in the Superintendency

School district level executive leadership presents varied demands on the superintendent – along with corresponding expectations for achievement of deeply valued outcomes for students and families in the community. The work life is serious and intense. There simply is no substitute for a highly focused, committed investment of oneself in a leadership role that has such clear responsibility to serve others. Thriving in such a role requires today’s superintendent to develop career-long strategies by which he or she can sustain their own personal and professional health while providing meaningful leadership.

WASDA’s 2016 Annual Educational Conference is intended to provide superintendents with knowledge and skill necessary to maintain their personal and professional edge in a professional life that is simultaneously challenging and exhilarating.  You will hear from a variety of experienced and knowledgeable professionals on key ingredients contributing to one’s ability to thrive in the role and enjoy a fulfilling career. Join your colleagues in Appleton.
