Developing Adult Learners and Leaders in a Growth Culture

Limited Capacity full

In collaboration with the authors of the groundbreaking book, An Everyone Culture: Becoming a Deliberately Developmental Organization, Pivot Learning has been working to help schools, districts and non-profits foster a “growth culture” within their organizations. In institutions where there is a strong growth culture, all individuals are encouraged, challenged, and supported to continuously improve themselves and each other. Unlike the old paradigm of taking time out of busy schedules for professional development, the practices and structures that develop a growth culture happen as a part of the organization’s everyday, core work. In a growth culture, every interaction, every project is an opportunity to learn. It fosters trust, honest communication, and innovation. Fostering deeper learning for adults requires incorporating an adult development lens into leadership development. We believe that this is the best way to foster adult leaders who can best support deeper learning for students. Participants will learn strategies for helping to develop growth cultures at their sites, as well as walk away with resources to explore growth culture work further.
