Are you ready to approach leading your school with more empathy, creativity, and fun? Want to learn how to embrace design thinking, solve wicked problems, and lead more like a designer? Learning how to embrace design thinking will forever change how you lead and how you create solutions to problems in schools. This institute will be a full-day journey of action and exploration into the world of empathy, creativity, and design thinking.
