What you will learn:
STUCK. No one (and no team) wants to feel stuck and we don't want that either. If you're looking for a way to jump start your team, spark new thinking, new approaches and start thinking outside of normal day to day, this course is for you and your team!
You can expect a high-energy, action packed Elective from a former innovation executive who has coached and trained leaders, individuals and startups in areas ranging from health tech to fin tech to social fulfillment and beyond.
You will walk away from this Elective with:
- A glossary of words and phrases (a reference guide) to use on your innovation and big thinking journey
- Reframing exercises and tools to get you immediately out of your normal day to day thinking
- An understanding of why innovative thinking and approaches can serve you personally and professionally
About the instructor:
I believe that everyone has leadership potential. Leadership isn’t just a skill that’s reserved for those in the c-suite. We all have the power to lead in our own unique ways across both social and professional settings. Sometimes we just need a little push in the right direction to get there. That’s why I wrote an entire book about it called Leader By Mistake: Becoming a Leader One Mistake at a Time, which shows how you too can find your inner leader by learning from your mistakes and homing in on the skills you already possess to lead confidently.
I live and breathe this leadership-for-all concept and my expertise is grounded in years of experience across a variety of organizations.
In addition to my work with Scarlet, I currently serve as the vice president of startup programming at AARP Innovation Labs, where I lead a team committed to finding the most promising startups world-wide and identifying how they can move their innovations forward through collaboration.
I also serve as a corporate board member at Plastipak Packaging on the Functional Leadership Development Committee.
While my professional experiences have been instrumental to my success and impact over the years, my hometown and education have been too. Born, raised, and educated in Detroit, I am a Warrior through and through. I proudly hold two degrees from Wayne State University—a Bachelor of Arts in public relations and Master of Education in instructional technology with specializations in interactive technologies and performance improvement.
I’m also a graduate of the Protocol School of Washington, where I focused on international etiquette & protocol, and hold a Six Sigma Green Belt certification in process improvement, which I use to help clients develop systems and processes that will allow them to reach their strategic planning and development goals. Outside of my professional and educational endeavors, I enjoy mentoring both young and seasoned leaders and serve as vice president for 12 Days DC Metro. I also love traveling, watching James Bond movies, and hitting the slopes during the winter for some snowboarding.
