Session Information
Harnessing Flow Triggers to Facilitate High Performing Environments

This session is ideal for educators of grades 6-12 and/or school leaders looking to deepen engagement among students or colleagues while also enhancing satisfaction and performance. We will dive into the 12 individual flow triggers, elements of experiences or mindsets that drive attention through the introduction of positive neurochemistry like dopamine and norepinephrine. Participants will learn about the basic characteristics of each trigger and have opportunities to create and takeaway resources for easy implementation in the environments they desire to positively impact.
