Shifting Mindsets for Successful Leadership in Education
Presenter: Scott Vinciguerra

As leaders traverse their career, they carry with them specific experiences which shape their perceptions in many ways. One of the challenges that leaders endure is the mindset that is reticent to shift directions. If leaders are to make any inroads with colleagues and students, the ability to pivot from one framework of thinking to another, in quick and seamless fashion, requires an open mind and a nimble approach. The ability to reframe the mind toward actionable resolutions and high levels of engagement requires that leaders work to listen, learn, and lead accordingly.
This engaging, hands-on workshop will equip leaders with the necessary tools to return to their campuses with a renewed sense and vision of potential for themselves, and those that they lead.
