Book signing to be held at Orland Park Barnes and Noble on April 26 at 7 p.m.

Entrepreneur and author Kristen Hadeed will keynote the High School District 230 Staff Institute Day on Friday, April 27 as she shares her story of leadership, giving herself and her team permission to fail, and learning from their mistakes. In Hadeed's first book, Permission To Screw Up, she tells stories about her biggest mistakes in leadership in hopes of inspiring other leaders to share their "perfectly imperfect" stories of success.

"Her message reinforces District 230's commitment to inspiring a growth mindset in students and staff," said Superintendent Dr. James M. Gay. "District 230 firmly believes that individuals who embrace challenges, persist in the face of setbacks, see effort as a path to mastery, learn from criticism, and find lessons and inspiration in the success of others are better prepared for success in school and in life."

District 230's commitment to developing a growth mindset is grounded in decades of research regarding achievement and success by Stanford University Psychology Professor Carol Dweck.

Permission to Screw Up author Hadeed imagines a world in which all organizations have cultures that empower people to keep climbing toward the best version of themselves every day. As the young leader of Student Maid, a successful cleaning company that hires students, she has fostered a unique perspective on leadership, organizational culture and engaging the next generation.

To share this message with the greater community, District 230 is partnering with Barnes and Noble in Orland Park for a book signing. Author Kristen Hadeed, will greet the community and sign copies of her book on Thursday, April 26, 2018 at 7:00 p.m. at the Orland Park Barnes and Noble.
