Innovative Leadership Boot Camp - June 2014    
ADVIS and Leadership + Design have partnered to offer a two-day interactive leadership “boot camp” for school leaders from 21 ADVIS schools wanting to think creatively, work effectively, and build innovative school cultures. At the end of the 2-day Boot Camp we will:
  • Understand why innovation is essential to current century learners;
  • Understand the qualities, habits, and practices of innovators;
  • Understand that every challenge and problem has a human centered, design solution;
  • Learn the design thinking framework and mindset and how it fosters real-world problem solving and collaboration;
  • Understand the challenges and benefits of group work and learn tactics and practices to making collaboration more effective;
  • Understand obstacles to innovation and change in an 
    organization and how to successful hurdle those obstacles.
Our Boot Camp ... Soup to nuts!
