Collaborate and Connect is one of Incubate to Innovate’s ChangeMaker Mindsets™.
When space and time are given to foster and encourage collaborative problem-solving skills, powerful ideas surface that impact our schools, businesses, communities, and the world around us.
Incubate to Innovate believes in the power of solving problems and creating opportunities TOGETHER. #ChangeMakerCrew
The mindset of Collaborate and Connect asks two critical questions: How can I share what I have learned in the most meaningful way? Who can I share with? Everyone can be a ChangeMaker in this world if ideation is shared with others for greatest impact.
Incubate to Innovate’s distinctive ChangeMaker Innovation Process™ extends beyond the typical end mode of create to the modes of Collaborate and Connect. These modes of the process foster learning and growing from one another and encourage individuals to be good stewards of what they have been given by serving, sharing, and contributing their ideas for social change and widespread impact.
Incubate to Innovate has chosen to live out the value of stewardship by creating an online collaborative learning community called the ChangeMakers for Impact network where the Collaborate & Connect mindset can be fostered. We want to bring together a community of ChangeMakers using innovation, creativity, and exploration to design a better world one idea and one collaboration at a time leading to social change and widespread impact. #Power of Together
All of us are stewards of particular things in life that no one else can take responsibility for. Stewardship is not just about time and money as we often hear. It includes feelings, opinions, actions, values, skills, expertise, possessions, and IDEAS. Beauty happens when we all come together and Collaborate & Connect!
If you work with students, how can you incorporate this mindset?
What IDEAS do you have that could make an IMPACT in the lives of those around you?
Who can you Collaborate & Connect with to make your IDEAS into realities?
How can you design more opportunities for those around you to authentically Collaborate & Connect?
What can co-create TOGETHER that we cannot do alone?
