Ready to bring more innovation to your work?

Design Thinking is a popular human-centric approach to problem-solving that more industries than ever use to create products and experiences that truly help people and even change lives.  It emphasizes observation, collaboration, fast learning, visualization of ideas, rapid concept prototyping, and concurrent business analysis, which ultimately influences innovation and business strategy. This powerful approach guides you through a process to uncover insights, prototype an idea, and test it with users. And Design Thinking can help you reimagine elements of your employee experience.

In this workshop, we’ll provide you with the key foundations in design thinking to better solve problems and seize opportunities in your work.

What People are Saying

"Anyone that can construct a sequence of conversations to lead others is a metaskill. Anyone who participates in meetings or owns an agenda would benefit from this. It is a whirlwind, but you are among others who are in charge of making an impact. This is a practical, hands-on deep dive for managers, entrepreneurs, and leaders who can change their culture by leading meetings like a pro."

Mark T.

"I realized my entire role is facilitation. I have to do a lot of lateral influencing. So I use these skills even if it is not a super-structured workshop. Our product team has micro meetings all the time, and these methods help us get the most of those moments. My team can lean on me to facilitate. You will redesign the way you have conversations. I can’t believe every college student doesn’t have to take a class like this. This is how you collaborate. It is the underpinning of the future of work."
