General Session 1 - Design for Strengths
Feedback form is now closed.
Consider the adage that the definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results. Is it time to change your approach? In this keynote you will learn a strategy to reframe your approach and solve old problems in new ways.
Olympic medalist John K. Coyle, shares the story of how he eschewed his coaches’ advice and quit trying to fix his weaknesses. Instead, he applied “Design Thinking” to his training, focusing on his core strengths, which led to a world-record-breaking performance. Individuals, teams, and schools can learn this method to identify and leverage their unique strengths (and design around weaknesses). By restructuring individual approaches and team collaboration to maximize native strengths, schools can leap from incremental improvement to breakthrough performance.
