I think you will enjoy this conversation!
I was recently a guest on the Resilient Schools Podcast with my friend Jethro Jones.
Jethro and I have a great time taking a deep dive into all things executive functioning skills and we even get to hear a short story from his time as a young chess player in Russia! You can listen by clicking here.
The title of this episode is How To Help Kids Win In School And Life and Jethro's introduction to our conversation is spot on:
"As students, we all know the importance of being successful in school. But what does it really take to achieve that success? While good grades and test scores are certainly important, there are other key skills that can make a big difference in a student’s ability to succeed. These skills, known as executive functioning skills, can be described as the things students need to be successful in school and in life.
I think you will enjoy and get real value from our conversation. I hope you are able to tune in.
