The Innovator's Mindset With George Couros

Play
Read more

In this episode, I have a conversation with George Couros, an “Innovative Teaching, Learning, and Leadership Consultant”, speaker, as well as the author of “The Innovator’s Mindset” and “Innovate Inside the Box.” George has worked with schools and organizations in many places around the world through conferences, keynoting, providing workshops, and consulting on how organizations can move forward by creating innovative environments for all learners in the community.

In this conversation we dive deeply into the impact that his parents had on him while growing up, his traditional Greek roots, and how sport defined who he was and the path that he is on. As well, George talks about an early mentor he had that made an enormous difference in his life. Her name is Kelly Wilkens and her impact on George is what led to his trajectory into leadership and wanting to make the same difference to others that Kelly made on him. George is driven and committed to the work that he does in education and I hope that you find value in our discussion.

George's Bio
