The Kendallville Chamber of Commerce sponsored the Innovator Mindset Workshop and was hosted by the Community Learning Center, a space to connect community members. The day-long workshop brought together Kendaville business and non-profit leaders and some bright young minds from East Noble Highschool to explore the Innovator Mindset.
The Innovator Mindset tool and e-learning modules were developed by Dennis Stauffer, a national leader in the innovation space. Sarah Lance, WBC EmPWR program manager, facilitated the workshop. “It was inspiring to be at the Community Learning Center, which is the re-purposed high school and to have a conversation about what it means to grow and develop our capacity for innovation with a broad spectrum from the local community.”
“Bringing people together, in a socially distanced way, to dig into challenging conversations about inviting feedback, questioning our assumptions, and testing our ideas is a great way to spend a day,” said Lance.
