HBS Club of Atlanta

The Wharton Club of Boston is pleased to share the following virtual event from the HBS Club of Atlanta.

Anne Jones (HBS ’97) has written an exciting book about how to use the case study method she learned at HBS to effectively teach children independent thinking, wise judgment, and grit. This method can be used with kids of any age, starting as young as age two and extending all the way through the teenage years and beyond.

Involving simple, one-minute stories, the case study method is something anyone can do, anywhere, and at any time—and the "miracle" refers to the outcome we see in kids' behavior! Adding this method to your toolbox can be a game changer, especially during the formative years of childhood. You can help kids become independent decision makers, own their decisions, and enabling them to self-correct, lessening the need for direction and correction from caregivers.
