How do we Lead with Empathy to create or re-architect experiences using innovation design thinking for the greatest impact?
Leadership becomes transformational as one chooses to strengthen adaptive capacity: It is the capacity to lead amidst shifting values, habits, and behaviors in order to discover SOLUTIONS to the challenges that are thrust upon us by the complex, rapidly-changing world we live in.
Often times, we hang onto old paradigms, and we continue to create events and architect experiences based on assumptions of what people need who are within our sphere of influence.
It is imperative that we Lead with Empathy to understand those needs as a beginning step. Then, we can start to brainstorm, ideate, and dream to move our ideas forward to meet those needs.
What if we created or re-architected experiences that INSPIRED others and cultivated JOY?
The “Experiences that INSPIRE & Cultivate JOY” graphic organizer was designed to help educators and leaders to reimagine and re-architect the experiences they are creating through ideation by answering 7 KEY essential questions:
Who: Who you are designing for?
Why: What is the purpose or outcome?
JOY Factor: What can make it memorable and fun?
First Impression: What impression will you make in the first 10 seconds?
Break Routines: How can you redefine an old norm or routine?
Limitations: What are the constraints and how can you turn them for good?
Invitations: How will attendees find out about this experience?
