In this episode of the Better Learning Podcast, host Kevin Stoller talks with Connie Edwards, Chief Business Officer for the School Superintendents of Alabama, about the importance of confidential peer networks for school leaders.

Connie shares her insights on why school leaders need a confidential space to share their challenges and concerns with peers who can relate to their experiences. She highlights the benefits of joining an exclusive peer network for school leaders like the Education Leaders' Organization (ELO).

When you become a member of ELO, you gain access to a confidential forum of 6-10 peers who meet once a month to work through the Top 5% and Bottom 5% of their lives. This forum is like a Mastermind group, but better. It's a mix of personal and professional development that has been utilized for over 40 years in other industries. The structure of the meeting pulls out meaningful discoveries by utilizing experience sharing vs. advice giving. Forum is truly a life altering experience for leaders.

Throughout the episode, Connie and Kevin discuss the benefits of peer networks, the challenges of being a school leader, and the importance of personal and professional development. They share their experiences and insights on how confidential peer networks can help school leaders navigate their roles with more confidence and effectiveness.

If you're a school leader looking for a supportive community of peers, then this episode is for you. Tune in to learn more about the benefits of joining a confidential peer network like ELO and how it can help you grow both personally and professionally.
