School Leadership Reimagined - What does Success REALLY look like?

EPISODE 149

What does Success REALLY look like?

Biggest Takeaways You Don't Want to Miss:

  • The biggest barrier to 100% success for most school leaders is that they don’t really believe that it’s really possible.
  • Our leadership training causes us to settle for tiny incremental gains and call those “success.” Builders don’t stop until EVERY child is successful. 
  • What would you do differently today if you really believed that success was possible for every child in your school?
  • Every child deserves to be successful in school. The question is, do our daily actions reflect that belief?

We're continuing our series on the School Hierarchy of Needs this week by grappling with a huge dilemma -- We all say that we believe that ALL students deserve to be successful in schools. But, do you really believe that's possible?

If we're really being honest, many of us have given up on the idea that every child will be successful in our schools and we secretly feel guilty about it.

If that's you, know that it's not your fault. It's the way we were trained. Leadership teaches us to settle for tiny incremental gains and call that success. But Builders see success differently.

In this episode, you'll discover how you can build a school where EVERY child is successful. Not only that, but you'll learn how you can do it right now, with the people and resources you already have.

So tune in today to discover how you can achieve success for every child you serve #LikeABuilder
