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.

 

If I was enrolling someone to Studio/E, I would tell them listen, you’re going to grow. You’re going to come out of it a better leader, a better person, a better thinker, a better listener. You’re going to learn things about yourself you didn’t know. You’re going to go on a journey. You’re going to be able to explore different ideas. You’re going to be able to explore yourself a little more, and you’re really going to grow as a person and that is a great experience, and we don’t do it enough. It will pay off benefits for you and your organization and for everyone around you.

Studio/E has taught me to be more thoughtful and specific in my ideation, and be more thoughtful in how to find and actively enroll people who can help me fulfill my dreams.

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.

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.

Aside from making fantastic connections with very inspirational people, Studio/E gave me a chance to take time to think about what I want to accomplish, how I’m going to do it, and different paths to use that that wouldn’t necessarily be natural to me. Anytime you get a bunch of smart people in a room – anytime you’re able to get information from smart people – it’s an incredible combination.

Studio/E has done a great job of teaching me to listen to other people better and enroll myself in learning more about them. Studio/E has changed the way in which I work with my team members and speak to them in ways that encourage the promotion of ideas and the creation of ideas.
