Encouraging Teachers to Take Risks in a Risk-Free Environment

Do you see failure as the end? Or the beginning?

If our schools are going to be places of continual learning, we need a new view of failure: one that sees it as a catalyst for progress and an opportunity to grow. For that to happen, we need a safe space to fail, and an environment and supports that give educators the confidence to take risks, learn from mistakes and work together toward goals.

Your teachers constantly help students learn from failure, not run from it. Here’s how to do the same for them.

Our eBook includes:

  • A look at helping teachers develop a “growth mindset”
  • Steps to take to promote a risk-free environment in your school or district
  • Questions for self-reflection as you work with educators to set goals and provide feedback
