Social Innovation and Transformational Change: A Presentation on The Origins of Our Strengths
"We are good learners because we know what to pay attention to and what questions are the right ones to ask."
-Paul Bloom, profess of psychology and cognitive science, Yale University
In an upcoming talk, Bird will explore these features of community leadership and social innovation: Are we good learners? Do we know what to pay attention to? Are we asking the right questions? In taking up these questions, he will examine the origins of our strengths across the "Pillar network," as in many networks across the country. Come ready to be jarred into thinking differently about your contribution to community life and our shared commitment to the public good.
