Insightful and inspirational. Worth delving into for anyone involved in education and leadership.
For all those in education, who wouldn’t want to listen to accomplished leaders in education- an hour of their time and reflection is so precious and what a great way to share it. I really enjoy listening to these interviews. The questions elicit nuggets of wisdom framed in contextual educational speak that make me reflect on my own values and leadership. The quick fire questions during the latter part of the interview maintain pace and interest to the very end. I like that the interviewers continue to dig when they don’t quite get the answer to the question asked. However, while I am hooked on the educational leadership interviews you lose me on the leaders in sport.
A gem of a podcast for teachers, coaches and physical educators. Especially great for those in leadership positions looking to learn from other leaders in the industry. Highly recommended.
