School Counselor Goals for the New Year
We are not fans of making resolutions for the new year. We hate the thought of setting ourselves up for failure. In this episode we talk about areas we want to focus on as school counselors using the principles outlined in the book by Dr. Nadine Burke Harris, The Deepest Well. Instead of setting unrealistic goals, we want to focus on improving by 1% each day. Listen in as we share our thoughts on what we would like to accomplish this year. What are some goals or areas you want to focus on this year?
