What Happens When Organizations Bear the Burden of Belonging?

NSRF director Michele Mattoon speaks at TEDxBloomington

Last August, Michele drew upon NSRF’s history with Critical Friends Group work and more recent research on Mindset Theory to explain the importance of Belonging Mindset when we’re collaborating. Rather than expressing common advice to newcomers to “find a way to fit in,” she explains and demonstrates what happens when organizations create collaborative groups with intention and a commitment to building trust and belonging. Please take nine minutes out of your day to watch this TEDxBloomington talk, and let us know what you think!

NSRF is now also piloting a new five-day coaches’ training for teachers to use to create belonging in their classrooms. Interested? Contact michele@nsrfharmony.org or call 812-330-2702.
