Title:
Innovative Leadership for a Better World
Topic:
Also presented at the Canadian Student Leadership Conference. This workshop discusses how innovation happens, harms, and how we can consciously turn the tide through learning.
Summary:
This workshop will develop ideas around how innovation happens (looking at things differently), how innovation can harm (waste and environmental degredation) and how we can support students to consciously decide to innovate productively and lead humanely to heal ourselves and our world. Participants will leave with self-discovered, tangible ideas to take back to their schools to support developing positive leadership in their students and classrooms developing a 'growth mindset.' This is presentation was created for and originally presented at the 2017 Canadian Student Leadership Conference.
