Welcome to the Better Leaders Better Schools podcast. This is a weekly show for ruckus makers -- What is a ruckus maker? A leader who has found freedom from the status quo. A leader looking to escape the old routine. A leader who never, ever gives up.
Most of us associate writing in a journal with a school assignment or something to do when you get the time. But a journal can be a lot more.
A journal can be a practical tool to help you be a better leader.
In this talk, Aaron Morris shares why a journal can be a powerful tool to help you reinvent, reflect, and redirect your professional life so you can be a better leader ...especially when your life changes in ways that you didn’t expect
