Leaders Spotlight on Learning

This new playlist provides an opportunity for leaders within Mohawk College to showcase a specific training course from the over 11,000+ courses on Working at Mohawk featuring LinkedIn Learning, Cornerstone Content Anytime, and other providers of asynchronous learning. All courses are under 1 hour in length and focus on ‘hot topics’. There are many curated playlists already available on Working at Mohawk and you can even make your own!

Brittany Lauton, Manager, Student Life, at Mohawk College knows that good leadership starts with an open mind and a sincere willingness to be wrong. To support each other well and grow as individuals and as teams, you have to be willing to think beyond best practice, try new things, celebrate BOTH successes and failures, and iterate, iterate, iterate!

When you approach a problem or challenge through a design thinking lens, you are free to decenter yourself and whatever bias you bring to the table to really begin to understand the needs of your end-user—in our case: our students and our teams—to begin to design, build and test innovative solutions to problems big and small.” ~Brittany

 This 33 minute session on Overcoming Cognitive Bias is so valuable. It challenges the viewer to approach the world and our jobs with curiosity and offers a number of simple but effective strategies to interrogate our biases and blind spots on the road to becoming more critical thinkers, better decision makers, and, ultimately, more equitable leaders.

 Follow this playlist for notifications as new course spotlights from Mohawk leaders are added monthly!
