Episode 27: Self-Discipline Starts with Intent: Featuring Brian T. Miller

Episode Highlights

Instead of trying not to be “that” story, let’s be “the” story, and better yet let’s help others find “their” story, too! In this episode, school leader Brian Miller gives great insight into how we can reflect on our own level of being all in for our own lives and in our work with students. Discipline is really just about how we care about something so deeply that we dedicate our lives to it. Join in on our conversation!
Topics Include:
  • Reflection on adventures and “that” story
  • The motivational power of staff-led initiatives
  • Rocky IV references
  • Discipline is a matter of interest
