Schools Of Excellence Podcast

Dec 6, 2021

Everyone makes excuses. We've all made excuses, and we will continue to make excuses. But what does it take to break this cycle of excuses and encourage personal responsibility in our schools of excellence? It's not about eliminating, it's about learning how to break the cycle.


Allowing the cycle of excuses to continue is normalizing behavior and work ethic that is completely against our values, morals and ethics. If you (or your staff) spend most of your time giving justifications rather than leaning in and learning, it’s time to break the cycle of excuses for your center. Listen in, as I share tips on how to do this.


In a nutshell, I speak about:

  • How genuine reasons and excuses get mixed up - and how to differentiate the two.
  • Tips for breaking the cycle of excuses and why it is important to do so.
  • How to shift the culture of giving excuses in your school of excellence.

… and so much more!
