Floor/Room #: 
Hagglund Room

This workshop is open to men and women of all career levels. We hope you will join us and encourage your students/postdocs to do so as well. This workshop by our colleague Elizabeth Lingo (FSB) is a workshop not to be missed!

Developing creative solutions rarely happens as a solo endeavor—instead the most successful leaders realize they need to harness the expertise of others to develop workable and sustainable solutions.


In this extremely fast-paced and immersive workshop, participants will gain experience in a range of key innovative leadership capacities: design thinking, empathic listening and inquiry, illuminating assumptions, brainstorming, sharing works-in-progress, giving and receiving feedback, visual thinking, and pivoting on the fly. 


Participants will reflect on which creative capacities were easiest/most difficult for them and gain experience in techniques and strategies to inspire and advance creative goals and collaborative work in their personal and professional lives.

About the presenter: Elizabeth’s research, teaching, and consulting focuses on how entrepreneurs, innovative leaders, change makers and creative producers advance their ideas from concept to implementation. She is passionate about helping leaders systematically develop their individual and organizational capacity to invent and imagine, work across disciplinary and organizational boundaries, manage ambiguity, and negotiate collective creativity. Elizabeth holds a PhD in Organizational Behavior and Sociology from Harvard Business School and Harvard University.
