The brand starts with the leadership of the organization. It comes from the leader's vision. The leader has to set an example. Staying focused on what matters most is essential to the brand process. #BizChatAL

I use social persuasion to recognize what we want to emphasize. We use social media to promote our students & teachers accomplishments. I've asked our teachers to tweet at least one tweet a day to share the great things going on in their classroom. #BizChatAL

Thank you, Dale!
