Rekindling creative purpose

Principled Innovation begins with a sense of purpose—of understanding the values of a learning community and pursuing changes to align the learning environment to those values (Practice M1). As Liz Lerman explains in her short video on creative resilience, one protective factor for resilience is one’s sense of creative purpose—of believing in our work, even when the world isn’t ready to receive it. In this individual or group activity, refresh your sense of purpose and rekindle the creative goal that sparked your Principled Innovation.
