What does it mean to have a team that is accountable, hardworking, and responsible?

Employees no longer feel compelled to serve companies that do not serve them… 

…this makes understanding employee retention key to attracting and retaining those top performers.

It’s time for school leaders to start to create an environment that fosters and builds a team of excellence.

Today’s podcast episode is a very unique conversation,

I talk about the two mindset shifts to help you increase retention in your center, starting with understanding the problem that you’re trying to solve. 

Because when we understand what is the problem that we’re trying to solve, it is a lot easier for us to be able to find the right solution. 

In a nutshell, I speak about:

  • The global evolution of hiring in the early childhood education space.
  • The core skills leaders need to create sustainability, profit, and legacy.
  • The two strategies to start understanding how to flip the narrative around the hiring crisis.

I hope that the content, strategy, and perspective shared in the episode will be very valuable to you in your continued pursuit of excellence for your center.
