7 Mindshifts for Tackling Old Problems in Education with Connie Hamilton, Joseph Jones and T.J. Vari

Leaders Coaching Leaders

 Poor achievement scores, teacher turnover, funding shortfalls and political pressures. These are just a few issues that have dogged the education profession for years; they seem intractable. But this session’s guests disagree. They believe we need a few mindshifts to spark our collective efficacy for tackling these problems. They also believe certain leadership behaviors which emerged to help manage the Covid crisis are valuable to retain and apply to these perennial problems in education. They discuss how different mindshifts are suited to particular challenges, offer leaders a way to reignite their passion for finding solutions to tough issues and frameworks for processing old problems in new ways.

Connie Hamilton: Asking and Getting Students to Ask Great Questions

Overthrowing Education

Today’s episode with educator and author Connie Hamilton is so near and dear to my heart. We have a great conversation about the importance of not only how to ask powerful, more focused questions, but also how students can do the same. Connie also shares how to respond to the “I don’t know” answer that we often get from students. She offers so much solid, applicable advice in this episode! At the end of the interview. Connie plays a “pop songs with questions in the title” The 5-Minute Game Show. And super bonus: She sings some of the answers! In my discussion with Connie you’ll hear me talk about my Lenses of Questioning course that has now officially launched. Watch the video  to find out more about the course and see NewLensEd.com to register. I’d like to give my special thanks to Connie Hamilton for joining me and also a special shout out to my Lenses of Questioning commercial helpers Shane Lawrence from The Ed Podcast, Yossie and Tuvia Frankel.
