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.

 

For me the biggest value that I’ve gained from Studio/E was really realizing that I may have more in common with people. There are some folks in my cohort that I frankly would not have thought of as colleagues or friends simply because we have very different ideologies or political persuasions. Going through this exercise in Studio/E, I have found we have so much more in common and that commonality gives us a great place to build and problem solve from.

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.

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.

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.
