Thrive in a Tribe update

Dr. Monica Knight is leading business educators beyond the myth that entrepreneurs are born, not made. She says that,

“There is nothing magical about the entrepreneurial mystique; it is not mysterious, and it has nothing to do with the genes. It is a discipline and, like any discipline, it can be learned. And creative and innovative entrepreneurial thinking can be applied to any situation throughout the spectrum of life.”

A dedicated practitioner of entrepreneurship education, Dr. Knight blends knowledge, skills, and attitudes in an inspiring shift to learning in a workshop environment. 

Monica is facilitating the 3 day Thrive in a Tribe Train-the -Facilitator workshop* from May 22-24, 2018 with Regina Treaty/Status Indian Services (RTSIS) in Saskatchewan.

This FUN and INSPIRING workshop does much to nurture an enterprise culture in yourself, your organization or your community. More details are available here.


*THRIVE IN A TRIBE  is Module 10 in a series of 12 modules presented by DRAGON 9 Training.

YOUNGstersTOWN Community Creativity Evening

As a result of a workshop with the Youngstown School students last year, momentum has been gained for an economic development idea for the Village of Youngstown. On April 7, community members will gather to work towards a shared goal of economic revitalization stemming from a suggestion made by the youth of the town.

This won’t be a typical strategic planning or brainstorming session, but a fun, creative, and interactive community evening led by Monica Knight to get people’s feedback on a potential theme for Youngstown.

Monica’s facilitation seeks to combat the often fragmented ways with which we attempt to solve problems in a group setting. Attendees will think about YOUNGstersTOWN using unconventional activities to spark creative responses.
