Creating a Culture of YES

The Waupaca Area Public Library is inviting all parents, community leaders, business owners, employers to join them for this presentation by Dr. Sanfelippo. 


We've all walked down a hallway or stepped into a room where we know getting what we want is going to be a struggle. In these times we tend to shut down. Many times people won't even enter into a conversation unless they are convinced the outcome will be favorable to them. This mindset completely inhibits the opportunity for growth. Creating a culture of YES helps leaders see the opportunities for those they lead as opposed to reasons why ideas don't work. Developing an environment where trust and YES are the default can transofrm the learning for students, staff, and their community. Dr. Sanfelippo will be speaking to students about the impact of their social media presence during the day.
