This lively exchange will explore Principal Burmeister’s unique approach to building conversations through the use of design thinking to engage students, teachers, parents and school board members. Lisa will use key practices from Moments of Impact to highlight the leadership choices and cultural conditions that spark new experiments in education and drive conversations with the potential to generate meaningful change in public schools. "They say insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting a different result. I say that’s also a pretty good definition of the typical business meeting. If you’d like to short-circuit the meeting loop and energize your team’s ability to solve real problems and create new visions, then MOMENTS OF IMPACT is the book you need.” - Daniel H. Pink, author of To Sell is Human and DriveRead the interview
