“North Fulton Business Radio,” Episode 161: Jeff Rose, Leading Ed Solutions, and Rachel Davis, The Edge
A national community for school superintendents and a Georgia-based community for emerging entrepreneurs were on this docket for this edition of “North Fulton Business Radio.” Jeff Rose, Leading Ed Solutions, and Rachel Davis, The Edge, joined host John Ray in the Business RadioX studio inside Renasant Bank in Alpharetta.
Jeff Rose, Leading Ed Solutions
Dr. Jeff Rose is the Founder of Leading Ed Solutions. In his 12 years as a school superintendent, Jeff learned that leading alone is not effective. Superintendents are in an isolated role. The demands and expectations are often unrealistic, and it’s actually becoming more challenging over time.
Further, school districts are grappling with immense problems, both on a local and national level. Yet, the ‘conference model’ and traditional methods of support are not adequately helping top leaders move from talk to action.
To meet these problems, Leading Ed Solutions is assembling a national community of stellar superintendents to join us, as they work together to focus on practical solutions and strategies to some of our most pressing issues. This year, they are tackling student safety, both physical and social/emotional.
Leading Ed Solutions seeks to provide a structure and support system to help our leaders, individually and collectively, take their districts to the next level.
