Get Dirty! The health, wellbeing and learning benefits of accepting and embracing imperfection and failure

Most of us like to be clean; to be comfortable and safe. Most learners think that “being correct” and “getting things right” is the ideal. While there’s nothing inherently wrong with this mindset, it neglects the reality that perfect is not possible all the time, while imperfect is an inevitability that’s not nearly as bad as many think it is. In fact, accepting and embracing imperfection, psychological “dirtiness”, can be a path to happiness and success! In this keynote, renowned Positive Psychology expert, Dr Tim Sharp, will outline how and why “getting dirty” should be a part of life for all in education, and how and why you can practice this sometimes-uncomfortable approach.
