EPISODE 90

How Builders Achieve Their Visions
in 3 Years or Less

Biggest Takeaways You Don't Want to Miss:
  • If you only focus on tactics, you will perpetually chase shiny objects and never achieve real traction towards your goals.
  • Strategy is not enough. If your strategy is not contextualized in a larger vision, mission, and core values, you’ll stay on the School Improvement Hamster Wheel.
  • Builders build a Plan that is flexible enough to allow them to pivot in the face of new challenges, but focused enough that they accrue win after win each quarter.
  • Builders Plan in 3 year intervals and execute in 90-day sprints.
