In this episode I am sharing another learning moment I have had as I attempt to launch a non-profit STEAM Innovation Hub called 212 STEAM Labs.

In this particular episode I was working to learn how to speak in business meetings and make sure that the communication between both sides are clear to avoid any misunderstandings. I learned this the hard way in a few meetings I was part of as I was trying to figure things out.

Wishy Washy is a form of communication in education
Business world has no time for wishy washy as you will get ignored
Clear and effective communication starts with a vision and bit of confidence
Let me know what you think. How does this connect to your life and your thoughts? What questions do you have? What do you think about sharing the behind the scenes podcast episodes?

In this episode we discuss:

How do we work to change how we as coaches and teachers change our perception of teaching?
Why we need to change the perception on how we do the things we are currently doing.
Understand the problems when players/students don't see the reason WHY they are being asked to do the things they are being asked to do.
The fear of charting down the paths that nobody else is doing and dealing with the following:
What is the biggest difference in athletic mindsets today versus 10 years or 20 years ago?
How do we deal with the idea of continuing to do the wrong things right instead of the right things wrong?
Why children should play multiple sports instead of specializing in one.
What are skills needed to be successful in life and on the court?
[shareable]If you do things differently, then you are on an island on your own and if you are not successful you are screwed.[/shareable]

John Cole, founder of Dexter Industries joins us for the latest episode of the podcast.

In this episode we learn a great deal about life, learning, and entrepreneurship. What I love best about this particular episode is how he is able to share a glimpse of his journey into how he has arrived at his current point in life. This journey connects to so many students who are trying to navigate their interests and passions.

We discuss the following:

How did he end up as the founder of Dexter Industries?
The key skills needed to be adaptable and mobile in the job market and being successful in life.
Why there is no discussion of the specific content needed to be hired for a job. Focus on the traits companies are looking for and no so much on what content you contain in your head.
What is missing from the next wave of people looking for a job?(hint: you must be able to WRITE)
Building a portfolio of perseverance and grit. We must prove our worth!

[shareable]There is an advantage to being an amateur because you don't know any different.[/shareable]

[shareable]You inherit an institution knowledge when viewing problems with a master's eye which could cost you from finding the solution.[/shareable]

[shareable]Force yourself to write a comment for each line of code to exercise your brain to explain what you are doing![/shareable]
