In this episode I interview Andrew Sykes of Habits at Work (www.habitsatwork.com and www.bratlab.com).  His company helps organizations of all kinds tap their greatest source of competitive advantage - their people.  Andrew and I talk about the pivotal habits that are essential for helping companies (and schools) foster the health, happiness, and security of all their employees.  Time flew during this interview.  Andrew had so many great things to share about how to develop habits to improve all aspects of your professional and personal life that we may need to do a part two.  You can reach Andrew by email at andrew@habitsatwork.com and on Twitter @sykesandrew.  Enjoy this interview with Andrew Sykes.

If you’re a school administrator, you probably spend more time than you would like in meetings of all kinds.  In this episode Jeff Cimmerer and I talk about all things meetings - things that bug us, strategies to improve their effectiveness, and ways to avoid scheduling them in the first place.  It is possible to reduce the number of meetings you attend and make the ones you have to have more effective.  We rant and rave a little bit, but end up providing some pretty solid tips and advice.

Ever since I read her book Every Patient Tells a Story, I have wanted to talk to Dr. Lisa Sanders.  Dr. Sanders is a physician, author, and teacher of physicians.  Her speciality is what works and what doesn’t work in the process of diagnosis.  We talk about everything from how the process of diagnosis is like a detective story and how the cognitive biases inherent in the process apply to decision making for school leaders.  We get into health, wellness, work-life balance (spinning multiple plates), diet, exercise, burnout, and how to get comfortable with uncertainty.  We even talk about Dr. Sanders’s favorite and least favorite TV shows about doctors.  Enjoy this interview with Dr. Lisa Sanders.
