    Rewind: 6 Early Warning Signs Your School Culture is Turning Toxic

    Rewind: 6 Early Warning Signs Your School Culture is Turning Toxic

    One of my favorite sayings is "Culture eats strategy for breakfast." If you've got a toxic culture, it really doesn't matter what your strategic plan or vision is. Your culture always trumps your strategy. That's why this week, we're re-sharing this powerful episode on protecting your culture from toxicity. You see, Builders protect their culture by spotting and getting rid of toxicity before it has a chance to spread.  So, it's important to recognize the early warning signs that your culture is turning toxic. If you can nip these in the bud before they have a chance to infect your entire culture and ruin any initiatives you are trying to launch, you can clear the way to achieve your school-wide vision and get everyone on board #LikeABuilder.

    How Builders are Defying the Odds

    How Builders are Defying the Odds

    The national narrative around schools is pretty dismal right now. With test scores in decline, cultures turning toxic, and a rise in discipline issues it can seem as if we are headed for doom. Except… while the rest of the world is preoccupied with the narrative that “schools are in decline” there are Builders who are quietly defying the odds and creating GAINS in test scores, HEALING toxic cultures, and Eliminating persistent discipline issues. Today hear how some Builders are defying the odds and how you can too. You don’t have to buy into the prevailing narrative of doom and gloom in education. You can change the narrative#LikeABuilder.

    Could your school survive without you?

    Could your school survive without you?

    Who doesn’t love being the hero? It’s glamorous, it feels great, and it helps others -- or does it? We have always been taught that the leader is akin to the hero rescuing failing schools from utter disaster. But, if you are the only thing holding your school together, have you really made a difference? And, if the success of your school depends on you, what happens when you leave. On today’s episode, we’re going to examine why Builders avoid playing the hero and instead build systems and schools that empower their staff, students, and families to be the heroes. That way, their school is not only better, it continues to be better long after the Builder leaves. Tune in to discover how to build a true legacy #LikeABuilder.

Great content. Too much promotion

As a new leader, the information, mindset and topics have been relevant and engaging. The 5-10 minutes of promotion every episode takes away from the podcast.
