Welcome back to season 2 of the School Leadership Reimagined Podcast!
This season we're going to tackle some of the biggest obstacles you face and show you how to turn them into some of your biggest opportunities this year.
This week, we're talking about how Builder’s turn their biggest obstacles into your biggest opportunities. It sounds a little bit like a platitude or a cliche doesn’t it?
I mean really, it’s a nice thought but they call an obstacle and obstacle for a reason. It’s something that’s in the way of your success.
I mean let’s think of some of the obstacles you might be facing right now -- students who aren’t coming to school, parents who aren’t being supportive, students who are reading 2 and 3 grades below grade level, a lack of funding to support your educational program, teachers who are ineffective and resistant to change, central office mandates that create more work and keep you from focusing on the work you need to be doing, no time to get into classrooms because you are constantly putting out fires, and I could go on and on and on.
How can you take these very real obstacles and create opportunities from them?
That’s what we’re going to talk about on today’s episode.
