The Innovator's Mindset by George Couros is a must read for anyone looking to shift their mindset within the education setting. From teachers to principals to district administration, George will challenge you to think and grow in your leadership role. There are so many relevant take-a-ways from this book. I know I will read and reflect through it again. The beauty of The Innovator's Mindset is that it is not a one and done book. You can read it over and over again and it will always be applicable. It is written so that it is easy to read, understand and discuss. This would be an excellent book study at the school or district level.
The personal stories and background he provides,the style in which the book is written, plus the humorous references and other anecdotes throughout, really engage the reader and make it meaningful and enjoyable to read.
I read it over the break and it was inspiring, led me to new ways of thinking and new perspectives, encouraged me to do some reflecting and helped to motivate me for the return to school. I took some notes, learned a lot and have so many new ideas for my classroom and for sharing with my colleagues. I highly recommend this book for anyone, you will learn so much and enjoy every part of it!
