A High School Vice-Principal's View (part 1)

"I want to shock the world with what kids are capable of doing!" - Steve Loser

Steve is not your typical educator. At the core, he's an entrepreneur who happens to be a vice principal at Fishers High School. His vision is to revolutionize the education system so students can drive their own learning, connecting content and skills to authenticate problems in their community and personal passions. He sees teachers as facilitators of student growth, and schools as value-adding talent incubators for communities. In part 2, you'll hear him talk further about his vision. 

In today's episode, Steve gives some great insight for parents as to how they can help their teens engage more effectively in the learning process.

Co-Managing With Teens

I cannot wait for you to hear this podcast! This episode offers great insight on how to truly engage young people effectively. If you are an educator, parent, coach, or leader of teens, you need to listen. A second reason I'm excited about this episode is because it is very personal to me.

Gary Schuler was my high school basketball coach, baseball coach, Spanish teacher, 7th grade football coach, and physical education teacher. He is in the top 5 people who have influenced my life. And after 46 years of working as an educator, he has a wealth of knowledge when it comes to working with teens. I can't wait for you to meet him!

Chase Your Optimal (part 2)

One of the toughest things to do in today's culture is to live a more simple life. It feels like our life is constantly a rat race. We are continually reacting to everything in front of us, bouncing from one thing to next. Trying to get "unbusy" (not a word) and live with intention and purpose seems elusive. No wonder the stress level is so high. And, I can be the biggest offender. 

In today's episode, Mindy Irish and I continue our conversation about what it means to Chase Your Optimal. We will address what it means for our families to live on purpose and take greater care of ourselves.

Chase Your Optimal (part 1)

Chase Your Optimal. I love this phrase!  It speaks to everything I'm about when working with young people. I only wish I would've coined it first. 

In today's episode, Mindy Irish shares a little bit of her incredible story of life change and how she came up with the powerful phrase I want to steal. (No worries. All is safe, Mindy.) You will also hear what it means for teens to chase their optimal when it comes to helping them develop their purpose and calling in life. 

Mindy is a professional fitness trainer and coach. She is also a wife and mother to 4 very active kids. And if there is one thing I learned about Mindy, it's that she has a passion to help people become all they were meant to be. Her story is truly inspiring.
