Parents who wonder is there a different way to do school?
And a group of educators who show us how using design thinking.
Design thinking is a human-centered framework. A unique method that teaches both skills and mindsets. Used by top companies like IBM, Google, Apple, SAP and more.
A 2-year research study showed design thinking prepares learners with the skills today's world demands.
The documentary will inspire you and your community, spark curiosity, and have wondering: "What can I do next?"
How will you bring the change to your school you want to see?
When you host a screening you'll also have access to a private community of leaders ready to use design thinking to create clarity and alignment to create the change they want to see.
Bring a design thinking workshop to you
When Google launched Project Aristotle to learn what qualities make a great team they learned it was creating a culture of trust and psychological safety. As Amy Edmonson reminds us, if we don’t feel safe saying “I don’t know” or trying new things, we fail before we can even start.
You'll Also Get Access to the Course
We've created a mini-course to guide you in using design thinking. Design thinking is not just a one and done experience.
You'll learn our 5 steps to create sustainable change at your institution.
Great teams have a culture of trust and psychological safety.
Einstein famously said, “If I had an hour I’d spend 55 minutes thinking about the problem and 5 minutes thinking about the solution. Before we can create solutions we need clarity about the problem we are trying to solve, and the opportunity we are curious about.
Everyone has ideas, very few can turn ideas into impact.
It's a line many leaders quote because you recognize that the success of your idea rests upon the strengths of your team. When everyone is aligned toward a shared vision, we create a culture where people have the autonomy, mastery, and purpose to DRIVE toward the shared vision.
Have you heard Peter Drucker say, "Culture eats strategy for breakfast."
As Steve Jobs shares, “Innovation is saying no to 1,000 things. Now that you have a culture where people trust each other and feel safe, they have clarity about what needs to be done, and they are aligned, it’s time to prioritize how you will reach your goals. We know what we want someday, but what will we do on Monday to get there?
It's time to move from having ideas to creating impact.
The moment ideas and plans move from post-its and docs to real life, is the moment we often freeze. In these moments, alongside our dreams, we must honor our fears and remember that we're all great at something, but we can't be great at everything. Together you'll have created a strong culture of innovation, grounded in empathy, ready to move from ideas to impact.
Nelson Mandela taught us, "Courage is not the absence of fear, but triumph over it."
