What’s the one question we should be asking students, and ourselves, this school year?

Gretchen shares what a simple question that is becoming more and more central in her work with students, educators, and coaches starting their own businesses. The conversation includes:

  • Why there’s no such thing as “busy work”
  • Why it’s important to understand the purpose behind every assignment
  • Why it saves time, energy and aggravation to reflect on the purpose before taking action
  • How this advice works for any kind of action, not just school work
  • How teachers, parents and educators can support students
