Leader Chat

We’re educators just like you. And like you, we’re passionate about quality education, and work tirelessly to improve schools. District and system leaders bear awesome responsibility for these efforts, often without access to peers and experts who can offer solutions and insights. That’s why we offer a weekly Leader Chat. Host Dr. Jeff Rose, Cognia’s Vice President of Leadership Development, interviews top K–12 experts, business executives, and school leaders from around the country to discuss and solve real leadership challenges.

If you have not experienced or heard of our current challenges related to our teacher force, you are either lucky or not paying attention. It’s a significant challenge now and promises to be only more so in the future. In this Leader Chat Jeff engages Dr. Richard Ingersoll who is a leading expert on America’s elementary and secondary teaching force, and a professor in education and sociology at the University of Pennsylvania. Likely, we could not have found a better leader to talk with on this subject. The good news is that leaders can make a difference in dealing with this challenge as Ingersoll points out. We know we have avid and first-time listeners. If you are either and have not rated us or left comments for us, PLEASE do so. We want to know what you think! Listen, learn and enjoy!

About the podcast

Leader Chat with Dr. Jeff Rose engages experts and practitioners to discuss the challenges of school leadership—from strategy to staff well-being to decision making in chaotic times—with straight talk and pragmatic approaches. To support members of Cognia’s Leadership Circle, we address the pressing issues of the day, chatting with leaders dealing with tough problems—from school board politics to school improvement and student safety. School leadership is isolating. Our Leader Chat breaks that isolation as we share solutions to help leaders in education day to day. If you’re a member of the Cognia Leadership Circle, you can join us live every Wednesday, ask questions, and contribute to the discussions.

You don’t have to lead alone. Listen every Wednesday to Leader Chat.
