FACILITATORS

Noah Geisel

Customized Experiences, Drop-In Groups

“I believe that my lack of awareness of where the fences ‘should’ be around our creativity allows me to help other educators and administrators in ways that unlock novel concepts and possibilities.”—Noah Geisel

 

Coming from a place of deep commitment to curiosity, passionate pursuit, and service leadership, Noah Geisel helps participants throw self-imposed limitations out the window. He has a reputation for suggesting what he calls “the weirdest things” when brainstorming with education leaders. Those off-the-wall ideas draw people into conversation and create an atmosphere of true collaboration, understanding and support. Through true listening and thoughtful questions, he helps individuals connect with their purpose, passion and creativity in their work.
