Stephanie Rothstein has such inspiring energy and this shines through right away when she talks about her reflection on this past year and discusses how her role has transformed in education. Within the first 5 minutes of this podcast episode, Stephanie is already talking about the importance of sharing your work with others and how that has helped her personally get feedback and see the ways that other educators are applying her ideas. Stephanie talks about that very real fear of putting our work and ourselves out there and explains how she has moved beyond that fear to be a true creator. The two discuss the following idea shared by George: "Providing value will build a name but building a name does not mean you will build value." Stephanie talks about how she learned to stop being somebody waiting for someone else to that she was worthy - she learned how to “shoulder tap” herself and she shares what she did to be better at this through her year of saying “yes to me.”
Three Main Points:
Listening can be powerful, the way that we show we are listening can vary. What are some ways you show you listen?
How do we build connections that are meaningful to each individual learner?
How do we model our own risk-taking? And how do we be okay with giving ourselves that permission?
