*Nikki Spears has been an educator for 25 years, but in recent years, stepped away from her career as a principal, and now works as an educator, motivational speaker, and change leader.  In 2016, Niki co-founded the* *Energy Bus for Schools* ( https://energybusschools.com/ ) *with* *Jon Gordon* ( https://www.jongordon.com/ ) *, where she trained educators to create positive school climates for teaching and learning. She recently embarked on yet another career – as an author..”**In this episode, we speak to Niki about her non-fiction motivational book, “* *The Beauty Underneath the Struggle* ( https://www.amazon.com/Beauty-Underneath-Struggle-Creating-Story/dp/B08GPW4B64 ) *” and her children’s story, “* *The Hand Hug* ( https://www.amazon.com/Hand-Hug-Baelor-Books/dp/B08DSYRZFD ) *,” which features her granddaughter Baelor. We also discuss how COVID-19 has brought unexpected growth opportunities for self-awareness to educators and she invites them to rewrite narratives often perceived as negatives into positives that empower a growth mindset. We also speak about how school leaders can groom educators to walk in their purpose, focusing on how they fulfill that inner purpose versus what they are doing in pursuit to fulfill their professional goals.*Copyright Chillhop Music - https://chll.to/b9bb917bCopyright Chillhop Music - https://chll.to/6cd0b356Copyright Chillhop Music - https://chll.to/fae889b3
