From Growth Mindset to Growth Culture: Leading With Abundance Through Uncertainty and Change
This keynote will challenge leaders to stretch their personal growth mindset toward leading a growth culture.
As we leave the portal of the pandemic behind us, responding to a stream of crises in the present, what will it take for school leaders to navigate the unimaginable challenges of the future? Not just to get by, but to expand joy, hope, and inclusion in our schools and ourselves? How can an aspirational vision of the future be translated into daily practice of leaders and school cultures?
This interactive keynote will help set the table for an exciting conference experience by challenging leaders to stretch their personal growth mindset toward leading a growth culture. Present crises offer an opportunity and a demand for leaders who are ready to think abundantly and with strategic foresight, beyond the familiar – generously confronting, not avoiding, today’s challenges, from AI in learning, to diversity, equity, inclusion reckonings, calls for new capacities, like creating time and space for imagination infrastructures, fearless inquiry, and the courage to tell new stories of school.
Let’s explore the dispositions to not go back to the old normal, but to go forward to create schools that are more relevant, equitable, healthy, and joyful for all children.
This interactive plenary session is an opportunity to synthesize and reflect on our learning during the previous four days. We will draw on some of the wisdom our keynote presenters and specialist speakers have shared and consider takeaways and insights that inspire us all with a sense of hope, inspiration and purpose.
