Biggest Takeaways You Don't Want to Miss:
- “Good is the enemy of great.” The reason that we don’t have more great schools is because we have so many good schools.
- “A great organization is one that delivers superior performance and makes a distinctive impact over a long period of time.” Thus in order to be great (according to Jim Collins) you need 3 things -- superior performance, distinctive impact, and sustained results.
- It’s really hard work being good. It’s less work and more fun being great.
Ever since Jim Collins penned his seminal work Good to Great, many schools have made that their goal.

The answer is that "Good is the enemy of great." So in today's episode, we're going to explore why being a good school is no longer enough and how more of us can make the transformation from good to great #LikeABuilder.
