George Couros keynoted at the Coquitlam Principals and Vice Principals (CPVPA) Conference, October 19th-20th, 2012. This is a conversation we had on the trip back to Vancouver from Whistler, BC. We talked about leading and learning ‘out in the open’. We discuss harnessing Twitter, reflecting and learning on blogs, taking risks, and taking advantage of ‘the wisdom in the room’.
