Key Thoughts from the Interview:
Schools are dynamic places. Listen to how Jethro led 32 initiatives simultaneous to transform his school for the better. As you will hear, it all starts with empathy.
Jethro raves about Seth Godin’s Creative Workshops. Jethro’s approach to learning and growing is fascinating.
Recently inspired by Tim Feriss’s interview of Hugh Jackman, Jethro is journaling each day and has already experienced the power of this simple practice. But, this is journaling with a twist. Discover how you can also make this a consistent part of your life for big changes.
One thing Jethro would love to learn--the piano! Not surprising since so much of this interview is wrapped around change, growth, and creativity.
Interestingly, Jethro describes how his own Podcast is at the center of his exponential growth. His process for identifying his guests is unique and extremely worthwhile.
Jethro’s final response on what he used to believe, but doesn’t anymore, is at the heart of change--that it doesn’t have to be a certain way. His Tik Tok story is a perfect example of learning in new and dynamic ways.
Jehtro’s interview is very insightful for any educator looking to make a difference in the classroom, school, or district.
