This is a re-air of one of our most downloaded episodes for the Schools of Excellence Podcast. 

As I mentioned in the last episode, during this time I am committed to creating valuable content for the upcoming Summit of Excellence that will be taking place on March 1-2, 2022 in Boca, Florida.

While I do that, I’d love to bring back some important conversations and also practice what we preach:

  • Focusing on our priorities
  • Creating margin for things that come up
  • And creating space to do what matters most.

In this episode, I discuss how by implementing the Gratitude Matrix, you can achieve higher retention and a more collaborative culture for your school.

After 30 days of implementing the Gratitude Matrix, one of the executive directors in our Membership Program, Kerstin, went from 17 callouts in September to 4 callouts in August.

What did she do?

She implemented the Gratitude Matrix in her school and saw an almost immediate shift because her staff felt valued and appreciated.

This is why I am so excited to share the Gratitude Matrix with you; a very powerful, yet very simple system, that I teach to all of the owners and directors that I work with.
