Reason to Believe

The Studio/E Community has more than 500 successful members from all sectors. Some of the organizations include Target, Allina Health, the FBI, Cargill, Babson College, University of St. Thomas, the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, the Minneapolis Institute of Arts, Vistage and many others.

 

I would recommend Studio/E, but I would first ask, “Are you ready to make a big difference in the place you are at today, professionally, but also are you ready to make a different in this community?” If you’re a lean in person and you want to do that and you want to do that in a different, tangible, measurable way, in a way that’s going to have positive impact, then I think you’re ready for Studio/E.

I run into people all of the time who have great ideas, but the genius is not in the ideas, it’s in the execution and the forwarding of those ideas. I can see a situation where people come to me with a good idea and they will be a fantastic candidate for the studio e experience.

When I thought about going into Studio/E there was no question that there’d be a really interesting group of people. What I didn’t know is if it would provide that opportunity to think differently about a problem and it absolutely has. It provides the space to both think creatively about a problem that I care about and gives content and structure to work through what you are going to do about that. It’s this great mix of creativity and structure that’s been really useful.

Studio/E completely changes the way you’re approaching your work. It gives you a new set of tools for dealing with future projects and potentialities, but it also challenges you in the moment to rethink how you are approaching the stuff you’re dealing with now, right here on the ground.

Studio/E has changed the way I think because we really live in an interconnected world and finding those connections and being intentional about who we connect to and really also being able to adapt and find new opportunities and building off of those has really allowed me to expand how I think.
