What you will learn:
Design thinking is a valuable tool in generating trust-based cultures, improving work ethic, and effectively solving complex problems. Yet, its principles don't just apply to business strategy — empathy, curiosity, collaboration, and creativity can help in all buckets of your life. In this workshop, we introduce you to design thinking as it extends beyond the workplace. We’ll dive deeper into its process to help you build a design thinking muscle, and provide you with actionable tools to turn this practice into a lasting behavior. Learn skills to communicate effectively, collaborate empathetically, and ideate fearlessly, whether you’re tackling a strategic problem or planning a dinner with the in-laws.
