Season 1, Episode 18

On this episode, Jack Schott and Howie Grossinger are talking “old heads” and embracing change of leadership and mentorship. They discuss the importance of gaining trust from constituents like your staff’s parents and support system and how to navigate your boss being in on all team meetings when you’re leading them.

If you’re looking for a podcast that shares a great perspective about growth mindset and camp mentorship, this is the pod for you.

Producer EmJ’s takeaways:

  1. The “Staff, not stuff” mindset is one to keep front of mind when budgeting for higher salaries over the fun of new toys.

  2. I like the idea of setting expectations when a boss/ leader comes into a meeting as an equal member. Reminding each other that they’re there as a part of the system, not the end-all-be-all with ideas.
