Tania Katan//TedX Speaker -Bestselling Author -Creative Trespasser

Unlock Your Creativity in Uncertain Times

Hello Educators!

I know this is an uncertain time, but good news: ALL times are uncertain! The time between teaching a lesson and having students receive it. The time between the first bell and the last. The time between finding your creativity and pivoting your entire way of teaching.

You’re probably feeling a little unclear about how to use creativity to turn this covid ship around. In speaking at and leading workshops on creativity at Fortune 500 companies, universities, and summits around the globe, I know that creativity, voice and storytelling are the essential elements needed for us to flourish in the middle space. I practice this. I believe this. I wrote an entire book about this called Creative Trespassing.

This course is for you. I made it to help you at this unique time unlock your creativity and experience the personal agency necessary to move with and through all uncertain times! I did this because your students, colleagues, communities, the world need YOU to show up with your  best creativity offerings in-tact and ready to rock!
