How to Develop a Brave Habit in the Classroom with Todd Henry

In this episode of the Fueling Creativity in Education podcast, hosts Drs. Matthew Worwood and Cyndi Burnett sit down with guest Todd Henry, a self-proclaimed “arms dealer for the creative revolution.” Todd shares his insights on the importance of defining the problem effectively in a team to ensure progress and the significance of implementing practices and disciplines to sustain effective work in the workplace. The conversation delves into the concept of bravery, distinct from boldness, and the habit of bravery as a choice made in the moment of need.

The episode explores practical tips for educators based on Henry’s “Brave Habit” book, focusing on instilling a vision of what’s possible and allowing students agency, along with encouraging students to step beyond their fears and consider a better future. The discussion ends on a note for educators to encourage students to ask uncomfortable questions in order to identify areas where bravery could be warranted. The episode provides valuable takeaways for educators looking to infuse creativity and bravery into their teaching approaches.

We think we know the problem [but when] I work with companies, I discover that the biggest reason why they struggle to make progress is because [each team member] has a different understanding of the problem they're trying to solve. So they're having different conversations about the same thing.
