Schools Of Excellence Podcast

Jul 27, 2021

Today’s episode is the second episode in our special summer series! This summer series is all about the different ways that you can prepare yourselves for the upcoming school year. After nearly two decades in this field and speaking with hundreds of school owners and directors. There are very specific patterns of behavior I have noticed in successful school leaders.


In this episode, I share the top 5 signs of a thriving school leader and how you can incorporate them as you continue to build your school of excellence and leave your legacy.


In a nutshell, I speak about:

  • Communication - a thriving leader is one that builds time into their calendar to speak to their teams.
  • The importance of celebrating wins and success even though it is very  easy to get pulled into hardships and what is and isn't working.
  • The biggest mindset shift that school leaders need to make - investing in their people.
  • How strategy can be likened to planning a trip and how it plays a key role in successful school leadership.
  • How radical self awareness will change your entire life.


… and so much more!
