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.

Our worries about teacher shortage and a lack of motivation for young professionals to seek a career in teaching are real and it’s shared. In this Leader Chat, Jeff talks with Dr. Denise Spangler, Dean of the College of Education at the University of Georgia. She has led at UGA for many years, and her lens into this problem and the potential for future opportunities for change is something we should all pay attention to.

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.
