Rock Stars of Cleaning Conference * Who Is Driving Who?


Mike Ward is a facilities manager at a school district in central Ohio.

Mike Ward offers coaching and development for workers and leaders in the custodial and facilities profession. Mike is the author of three books, including

  • Who Swings your Mop; The common sense approach to custodial work,
  • The Ultimate Safety Handbook for School Custodians, and
  • The Ultimate Procedural Handbook for School Custodians.

Who drives who or who drives you?
Who drives your life, job, and career growth?
Are you proactive or reactive?
Do you have a COMMUNICATED plan or do others plan for you?
During this PEP Talk, I talk about two things that will help you drive you instead of being the passenger on someone else’s trip: why do you want to be a leader (HC in this case) and how do you control your role as the building manager once you are in a leadership role.

Listen and watch as Mike outlines some of the principles for being a Rock Star Custodian
