Details:

Building on from last month's 'Maximise Your Potential' workshop, this will be a creative and interactive session aimed at giving everyone a chance to reflect on their goals - and maybe explore some of the life-paths we don't let ourselves think through.

The session will draw upon the work of two Stanford Professors, Bill Burnett and Dave Evans, who have developed an iterative & collaborative approach to innovation, 'Design Thinking’ at Stanford's D-School. Now, they've devised a course that seeks to apply those same principles to life - neatly summed up in New York Times Bestselling book 'Designing Your Life: How to Build a Well-Built, Joyful Life' (ISBN-13: 978-1101875322).

Elizabeth Garber met Dave at the Lean In Leaders conference in July and will provide an introduction to Design Thinking and then lead some reflective & group exercises to get us started as we apply it to our own lives.

Then we're going to look at some of the obstacles we face in achieving our goals: starting with our own sense of self belief and a presentation from Sarah Beharry-Goss on imposter syndrome: how it affects almost all of us, and what we can do to combat it.

The evening will culminate in a creativity exercise led by Hants Digital Women founder, Saffron House, in which we construct a narrative around one key challenge we face: get ready to draw your 'Hero's Journey.'
