  11. 11. Day 4 (1/3) “Compassion a Sign of Strength”! – Dalai Lama Finnish education is about compassion & joyful learning! Session titled: Compassionate, Compelling Educator by Lotta Uusitalo-Malmivaara, The University of Helsinki It is common knowledge outside of academic journals that motivation, tenacity, trustworthiness, and perseverance are important traits for success in life. It is thus surprising that academic discussions of skill and skill formation almost exclusively focus on measures of cognitive ability and ignore non-cognitive skills. (Heckman & Rubinstein, 2001)
  12. 12. “A really powerful and relevant message about leadership, particularly the distinction between good and great leadership” – Participant, 2016 (on Tapio Lahtero’s session).

Statistically, it is more difficult to get into teacher education than med or law schools in Finland – Kirsti Lonka The most compelling speaker/motivator I have ever heard, I was highly engaged, motivated but similarly transported to a deep place of personal reflection where I questioned the biggest things in my life.

  17. 17. Participants’ feedback on the Leading Change in Education Workshop by Pekka Mattila “Leading change in schools requires trust, understanding, enabling environment, motivation and level of change needed.

The use of tools such as framing and re- framing, moving the bell curve, recognizing the bottle neck would help me at the implementation time”. - Participant, 2016 “The practical workshops on leading change were excellent. I am definitely going to use the methods we learnt”. - Participant, 2016 “Pekka had the ability to take the whole room with him on a ride to the moon and back”! - Participant, 2016
