When We Listen
Presentation Date: 1/15/2020
Duration: 1 Hour
With the challenges of our global workforce changing so rapidly, this statement has never been so true. We are facing problems of an environmental, civic, and technological nature that we’ve never faced before, and the Workforce is screaming for thinkers and team players. At the same time, we are facing epidemic levels of stress, anxiety, and, depression. Suicide is now one of the top reasons for death of young people in the U.S.
It’s not all bad though. In fact, there is much to be hopeful about. When we actually listen to the voices of students, what we find in their direct and indirect cries, is that the same shifts that we can make in our schools to prepare them for the 21st Century Workforce are the same changes that also increase their mental wellness and sense of purpose. This is a Win, Win, Win opportunity for us!
