21st/22nd Century Leadership: More Coaching, More Co-Creating, More Human

21st/22nd Century Leadership: More Coaching, More Co-Creating, More Human

Join us for this interactive workshop focused on leadership, coaching, and co-creating in this new era of generative artificial intelligence; how might we leverage the best of what it means to be human in teaching and learning, our organizations, and throughout society?  

  • How do we describe “leadership” and what are the implications of our diverse perceptions? 
  • How is coaching different from other types of influence?  
  • What might we notice about co-creation versus cooperation, collaboration, and/or partnering?
  • How can our skills be applied across the human endeavors that are most important to us?

This culminating opportunity of MCLI’s Innovation and Entrepreneurship (I&E) Series will include exposure to content on the topics of leadership, coaching, and co-creating infused with a maker experience (thanks to Phoenix Forge!), generative AI, and significant interaction among participants.  This day will also include next-step opportunities for students, employees, and community members including but not limited to design thinking resources, teaching and learning tools, networking, and early registration for future Innovation and Entrepreneurship programming at Phoenix Forge and throughout the district. 

This event is part of the MCLI I&E Series
