Jennifer Bashant is the CEO of Building Better Futures, LLC. She is a trainer, coach, and speaker with the mission to empower people to live their best lives. Her work takes her into the corporate world as well as into the education system.
Jennifer and I got right into a few wonderful topics, including:
- The importance of learning and understanding people’s gifts and talents in order to showcase them versus looking for their problems and how to address them.
- Why intrinsic motivation is the right type of motivation to focus on.
- The reason many of the problems addressed at the corporate level are rooted in the education system (and how to work through them).
- Finding the proper balance between giving grace for people to learn and grow while pushing people to be the best they can be.
While Jennifer and I spend a considerable amount of time speaking about her work in the education system, these thoughts span across all age levels. We never outgrow the foundational principles necessary to achieve excellence in life and business.
