With every gold star and acknowledgement for reaching the designated expectation, we further dig these learners into the mindset of compliance, self-doubt and massive anxiety. This model created ideal employees in yesterday’s economies but will foster little to no success in that of tomorrow. In this session, learn how simple but consistent changes in our classroom culture can stop preparing our learners for our past, but instead for their future.
