The Mission and Philosophy Roadmap
Jan 19, 2020 Season 1 Episode 4
The Lexington School

It's January and we are working to wrap up the next strategic plan. In doing so, one of the first things we evaluate is whether or not the mission and philosophy of the school continue to reflect who we are. After all, a strong mission and philosophy is the roadmap to a successful organization.

Marijo Foster, retired Head of the Lower School and current board member, is my guest this month along with several TLS students from across all divisions. Marijo and I take a trip down the mission and philosophy lane and discuss the value of courage-building and how it is woven into the DNA of The Lexington School.

I want to thank the students who contributed such words of wisdom to the podcast this month, and as always, here are some resources for those who want to dig a bit deeper as referenced in the podcast.

Teach Your Kids to Fail by Jessica Grose

Mindset: The New Psychology of Success by Carol Dweck

The Blessing of a Skinned Knee by Wendy Mogel

On Courage a short collection of Weekly Words from the archive of Marijo Foster

One more big thank you to Bo, Erica, Wren, Will, Louisa, Jack, Mia, and Malia for their courage in participating in this month's podcast!
