The Cost of Inaction (EP.188)

June 10, 2022

Did you ever think of what it costs you to wait to get the training you need? Many times we only think of the cost of training; we don’t always think of the value we get. Sometimes it can be helpful to identify the costs of doing nothing or even just maintaining what you’re currently doing, knowing that it’s not getting you the results you want. This is part of what I cover in today’s episode.

The Mindset of a Teacher (EP.185)

The Mindset of a Teacher (EP.185)

May 23, 2022

Where do you spend your energies when you teach? Are they 100% focused  outwardly, on helping your students? 80%? 60% The percentage here reflects how much time you’re actually spending worrying about things that have nothing to do with them.. fears about how you look or how you’re coming across or other things that you perceive are getting in the way of their experience. What would be possible for you if you could drop that entire internal dialogue and really show up 100% for them? This is what we’ll discuss today. This is a powerful discussion and one that might require you drop a few  things you thoughts about yourself that just aren’t true. Ready?
