Welcome to the Better Leaders Better Schools podcast.  This is a weekly show for ruckus makers — What is a ruckus maker?  A leader who has found freedom from the status quo. A leader looking to escape the old routine. A leader who never, ever gives up.

Nobody is born with ownership and resilience. It is a muscle one needs to build. How do you go about building the resilience and ownership? In today’s episode, we are joined by Winston Clement. He will be taking us through the process of developing the ownership and resilience muscle. 

We hope you enjoy the podcast. All the highlights, resources, and next steps can be found below. Listen to the full episode here and learn more at betterleadersbetterschools.com

Tip of the Week

Take pictures. Make sure you have somebody with you, whether it be a student or a staff member or somebody you can rely on to take pictures. It’s so important because you need to capture those memories with the kids and you need to be able to have something in a file somewhere when it’s time to do celebrations or for graduation that you could put together a video slideshow quickly.
