We had the priviledge of interviewing Mike for our first Online Series event ‘Leading Change: Journeying with Teams and Communities through School Transformation’ and he shared so much wisdom and insight that we wanted to capture and share all of it.  Please enjoy the interview, it is chock-full of golden nuggets.
