What kind of learning experiences unleash new ways of thinking?
Design Thinking at its core is a human-centered approach to solution making. It is a process and a set of methodologies but most importantly it’s a mindset. This mindset is a hallmark of effective leaders.
I create and deliver customized learning experiences for individuals, teams and organizations. These are based on Design Thinking and have focused on:
Creating innovative new products, services and systems designed to serve people.
Solving complex challenges that defy the conventional linear problem solving approaches.
Accelerating organizational change efforts by helping organizations get unstuck and imagining compelling new futures.
Expanding people’s leadership toolkit to increase their empathy, creative thinking and risk taking.
These learning experiences are:
Highly contextualized to deal with real-world challenges and opportunities facing the participants in their organizations or communities.
Experiential action based learning with tangible outcomes.
Practical, engaging and allow participants to leave with tools and skills they can immediately apply.
As a result of learning new tools, developing new skills and adopting a Design Thinking mindset, participants have created new products and services, affect social change, built stronger communities, accelerated economic development, changed government policy and created new businesses.
