About Us

Purposeful Principals inspires and motivates school leaders through speaking, writing, coaching and consulting. We believe that passion and purpose are the keys to successful school leadership, and both passion and purpose must be nurtured daily. We believe that the energy brought into the school by the leader directly impacts the entire school community. Therefore, we focus on the development of the leader’s mental and emotional agility needed to thrive in the role.
