Angela Maiers

Angela Maiers is considered one of today's most influential thought leaders in education and transformative thinking. It is fair to say when she speaks, she leaves no room unchanged.

She has been praised by leaders in business, the military, and administrators of schools of every level from elementary to graduate, around the globe for the life-changing, world-changing impact she has had on the hundreds of thousands of lives with whom she has reached with her message of Mattering.

Most recently, she has been named by Forbes as one of the Top 5 Edupreneurs to Watch; by IBM as one of the Top 20 Global Influencers, among the Top 100 Women in Technology by Onalytics, and among the Top 20 Education Thought Leaders by TrustEd. She is the author of 9 books on education, including the noted Genius Matters and Classroom Habitudes, and was for many years a prolific contributor to the Huffington Post on innovation, technology, and education.

A much sought-after speaker at conferences, organizations, schools and communities around the globe, Angela's singular focus is on transforming the people she reaches to set in motion a change of behaviors and perspectives that will draw out the potential in every person and result in a positive impact on the world. She describes her transformative message and methods as common sense put into common practice, though deeply-grounded in science.

An educator for 30 years, Angela's work in 78,000 classrooms across 100 countries has rallied more than a million children who have banded together to launch 170 social enterprises and pass 17 laws. In 2011, she gave a TEDTalk on the power of two simple words: You Matter, and the video went viral. What resulted was the start of a movement which became the global non-profit organization, Choose2Matter. As its Founder, Angela's mission is to help individuals recognize their value and potential contribution to change both their own lives and the world.

With her background in education and neuroscience, she initially sought to challenge and inspire students to work collaboratively to develop innovative solutions to social problems. In recent years, Choose2Matter has evolved into a movement that supports parents, educators, employees, and members of the military everywhere. As a result of her work, organizations across all industries are finding new ways to ignite the genius of their employees, successfully addressing a $15 trillion employee engagement problem.

Futurist. Innovator. Educator. Entrepreneur. Change Maker. Angela Maiers is on a mission to disrupt the status quo and to empower every individual to change their own world, if not the world around them, for the better.

Angela earned a Bachelor of Science in Education and a minor in Neuroscience from the University of Iowa and completed her graduate and post-graduate work at Drake University in Des Moines, Iowa. Angela holds two master's degrees in Literacy and Ed Leadership and today lives in Lone Tree, Colorado.

Angela Maiers is considered one of today's most influential thought leaders in education and transformative thinking.

Mattering IS the Agenda

When we think of people who made the biggest impact in our lives, it was the ones who most sincerely believed in us, and who let us know through their words and actions that we mattered.

Everyone in our lives need that same validation. Mattering a universal human need. We cannot capture the minds of our students, colleagues, employees and customers if we do not first capture their hearts.

You matter is not a statement of inspiration. It is not a project, or strategy, an event, or an item on the agenda. It is the agenda. Mattering is not something that just happens to you. It is something you actively pursue.

This workshop will leave you with the knowledge, habits and attitudes you need to transform the culture in your organization into one in which everyone knows they matter.

Hope, Mattering and Moving Forward

In these times of unprecedented challenge and change where we are bombarded with negative news that overwhelms the spirit, how can we build back our spirits and resilience? One word: HOPE. Hope strengthens our capacity to teach, learn and give our best response to the challenges confronting us. It helps us find creativity, solidarity, and courage to act.

Hope is an essential component to our recovery and renewal. We invite you to join Angela Maiers as she connects the language, theory and science of hope to our daily work and lives and discusses strategies for building and sustaining positive and flourishing vision for the future.

Together we will:

• Reflect on the attributes of hope and the beliefs, values and attitudes that bring them into practice.

• Identify strategies for developing capacity to be hopeful and hope-filled

• Learn practical steps and exercises to assess, teach and nurture hope and strengthen resilience.

• Apply a H.O.P.E model for setting and working toward recovery and growth goals

The Brave Leader
Bringing Courage into Practice

For centuries bravery has been a crucible of leadership and a fundamental principle for battle of any type and kind.

-But, what does BRAVE look like?
-How does BRAVE act and behave?
-And most importantly how big can YOUR BRAVE be?

This presentation seeks to answer these questions by putting these elusive concepts of leadership and learning in place to deliver better results faster for you and those you seek to lead and serve.
Your mission is sacred. The world is hungry for people to step onto their power to affect change. It is by daring to act with the courage we wish to see more of that we grow our capacity for influence and amplify our impact in the world.

Let’s not wait another second!
