Warmup questions:
·      We always like to start with a celebration. What are you celebrating today?
·      Is there a story that will help listeners understand why you are doing what you do?
1.     Your manta is “unlocking unlimited potential” Let’s talk about that specifically in the context of school leadership. I’m an assistant principal, or maybe a coach or even THE principal. I work hard every day – very hard. But I spend big chunks of my day in urgent mode and I don’t feel like I’m really moving my school forward and not doing enough to help my teachers continue to grow in their craft.
a.     What does it mean for me to “unlock my untitled potential” 
b.     And how do I do that?
2.     Optional: I can imagine some listeners thinking “This is great Brandon, but this isn’t me. I’m not a high-energy extroverted bundle of hoorah. How can I be authentic and be unlimited in my potential?”
Closing questions:
1.     What part of your own leadership are you still trying to get better at?
2.     If listeners could take just one thing away from today’s podcast, what would it be?
3.     Before we go, is there anything else that you’d like to share with our listeners?
4.     Where can people learn more about you and your work…
What a powerful interview. As I refenced at the top of the show, please find time to invest in reflection and consider these three questions:
1.     What are your defining moments?
2.     What was school like for you?
3.     Who are your role models and what did they do that inspired you?
