Episode Description

“The mind, once stretched by a new idea, never returns to its original dimensions.” – Ralph Waldo Emerson When Tre Hadrick thinks about the future of education, his mind immediately goes into game mode— so that he can help all children perform to their full potential. As a former coach, he understands that selecting the best starters to begin the game increases the chances for a positive outcome for the entire team. Choosing the right start is so important as we address the growing demands, needs, and hurdles in education during the post pandemic era. Tre Hadrick is ready to lead educators, parents, and communities into the future so all children can reach their full potential by: - teaching children how to cope with the challenges of life, rooted in self-confidence, normalizing the mental health conversation - making sure all children have a fair opportunity to learn - stressing the importance of completion over correction, encouraging growth over grades, more concerned about mastery over mistakes - allow families to find out what works best for their child(ren) This newly appointed Board Member to the PA Board of Education has enthusiasm, insight, innovation, and practical strategies for the field of public education.

Living Strong: The Flip Side of Adversity

Thursday at 2 PM Pacific Time on VoiceAmerica Empowerment Channel

Resilience isn’t about bouncing back, but bouncing forward. Living Strong: The Flip Side of Adversity brings powerful stories and fearless conversations from experts in the field of business, relationships, emotional, physical and mental health, and faith-based communities together to give practical insight on how there is always a flip side to every story. Each episode creates a brave space that combines proven lessons from neuroscience, powerful tools from authentic connection, key principles from life lessons, and practical promises from faith-based insights. Trauma, toxic stress, broken habits and hurting hearts don’t define destiny, but peace isn’t passive. It requires an exchange. To create a flip and access peace in the middle of the pieces, you are challenged to make an exchange of the lies that have kept you mentally hostage in basement moments for a Steps of Growth framework, which cultivates a shift toward growth planning and forward movement.
