TFI 2019 Symposium

Passion, Purpose, and Perseverance
No doubt, you have been told to “find your passion” or even “follow your bliss”, and perhaps you have even gone as far to pass on this allegedly sage advice to your students. Yet in doing so, we may be unknowingly setting them up for failure by sending them on a wild goose chase or in search of buried treasure. Instead of “finding” our passions as if they were lost, research suggests that we should instead be cultivating them from within.

During this professional learning experience TFI Fellows will learn how to accomplish the following in themselves and their students and overcome the unseen forces that stand in the way of true inspiration.
Jon Davis from the Center for Intentional Leadership will start off the symposium with an inspiring day of insight into Intentional Leadership and Purpose.
Then Prof. Brian Housand will focus for two days on the following topics:
Defeat Digital Distractions
Overcome Imposter Syndrome
Develop Your Superpower
Prioritize the Purpose
Persevere in the Face of Adversity
Dare Mighty Things

Prof. Housand was honored to be selected as part of the #NASAsocial team for the InSight Mars Landing this past November! He tweeted from @NASAJPL with all the NASA engineers and scientists during the landing! Learn about his work at his website:
