Dates: September 26, 2018; 8:30 am registration; 9-3:30 pm

Carol Dweck’s work has focused on the ideas of “fixed” and “growth” mindset, yet educators will need to go a step further with these notions to create the learning opportunities that our students and schools deserve. We need to focus not only on what we know, but what we do with what we know.
In this workshop, George will discuss the idea and characteristics of “The Innovator’s Mindset” (as discussed in the book of the same title and is included in this workshop). He’ll share powerful examples on why this is so crucial for all educators. This full day workshop is meant for leaders to help others within their organization not only accept change, but embrace it, to create better powerful learning opportunities for our learners. It is not focused on the “how to” of technology, but is more focused on the conversations that will help staff move forward in a way that they will be excited yet feel supported in their journey.
George’s presentations are known to be emotional, humorous, all while pushing your thinking. They will definitely connect to your heart first, in a way that will last with you long after this day. He will start the day with an inspiring talk and then have an open reflection break, allowing participants to share their needs for the day and giving him the opportunity to personalize the rest of the day for Vermont’s leaders.

* Includes meals and the book: Couros: The Innovator’s Mindset: Empower Learning, Unleash Talent, and Lead a Culture of Creativity
