DANIEL BAUER is the Chief Ruckus Maker at BETTER LEADERS BETTER SCHOOLS (BLBS). He launched the BLBS Podcast in September 2015. With over one million downloads, the BLBS show is the most influential podcast available for educational leaders. In 2016, he changed how professional development is offered to school leaders through the structure of a mastermind. Since then, Daniel has coached and mentored over 100 school administrators from every continent in the world (except Antarctica of course).

In 2017, Daniel launched The School Leadership Series, his second podcast which amplifies the diverse voices in school leadership today. He is the author of The Better Leaders Better Schools Roadmap, which released as an Amazon #1 new release and his second book, Mastermind: Unlocking Talent Within Every School Leader, will be available on September 28, 2021, from Corwin Publishing. Daniel’s JUST CAUSE is “to connect, grow, and mentor every school leader who wants to level up.”

Daniel Bauer: The Principal Success Path

“It’s not about being the best. I think that’s a silly thing to strive for. If you strive to get better every single day, the funny thing is you probably will ultimately become the best. Just improve 1% every day and that will lead to exponential results. To create the best year ever, you need a path, a path that simplifies the complexity of school leadership. When you have a path, all you need to do is take the next step.”
