Creative Thinking is the Hardest

What is the Most Important Trait?

Flexibility is the most important college and career readiness trait.  Being able to adjust, modify, alter course, or even stop requires flexibility.  How do you develop flexibility?  How do athletes do it?  They constantly stretch.  Why would it be any different at school or work?  In my book Teaching Students to Dig Deeper, I explore ways that flexibility can be developed.
