Today Gina is shifting perspective a bit to gather lessons from a different area of business and service. Dr. Stacie Herrera is a licensed school psychologist, owner of Herrera Psychology, and owner of Telement works with youth in school settings, and Sandi is the CEO and Founder of Educator Dynamics and been creating school transformation for thirteen years. They have partnered together to create cultures of sustained wellness around learning environments.
Children test the limits of their surroundings. The schools and the overall system they find themselves in. For there to be an organized and successful school experience, the adults need to be unified and communicate clearly, and teachers on the front lines must be supported by the overall system.
This is very much like adults in their work and sales environments. Without clear and supportive leadership with clear expectations, nothing functions quite as well as it should.
The parallels don’t end there. Gina, Stacie and Sandi discuss the importance of strong values, inspiration, trust, problem solving, moving people toward their goals, playing the long game, building positive team culture, persuasion, creating buy-in, making sure groups have the right tools and training, overcoming resistance, designing a road map for making progress, and much more.
