    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?

Love this podcast!

These girls are so funny and informative! I have a great time listening to them. I have been a school counselor for 17 years and I still learn something new from every episode- even if it is that Kim never washes her hair 🤣! Keep up the good work! School counseling is hard work and I appreciate the time you take to entertain and inform us every week 😘!
