There is a way to deal with the fast pace in our world today due to many factors. Yes, one of those factors being personal technology. What Mr. Couros captures in The Innovator's Mindset: Empower Learning, Unleash Talent, and Lead a Culture of Creativity is just that, a mindset. Not a recipe, not a blueprint, not a prescription. The very nature of today's world is such that there is no surefire curriculum, program, system, or app that fits any one school district, school building, classroom, or even, any one child.
Every chapter is clearly thought out and ends with thought-provoking questions that should be considered by everyone who plays any part in educating children. In the end, it's all about a culture. And that culture is held together by the most important driver in schools... Relationships, relationships, relationships.
There has never been a more exciting time to be an educator and this book captures every reason why I believe that to be true.

What I especially loved about this book are the discussion questions at the end of each chapter. This really helped me reflect on my actual experiences in relation to the material presented in the book. The questions then also made hosting our staff book club for this book very easy and natural. This book is the first one to get my colleagues & I excited enough to start a book club!
Additionally, the ideas in this book live on in discussions long after you're done reading this book (if you choose) via social media using #InnovatorsMindset. Educators all over the world come together using #InnovatorsMindset to discuss, share and tell stories. The author himself participates - what better way to really live the ideas in this book!
I highly recommend this read for all educators!
And while no book provides all the answers, this provides some great questions, ideas and discussions.
If you're an educational leader, you definitely should read it. If you're not, reading this may make you want to become one.
