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.

 

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.

I highly leveraged the Compass methodology and entrepreneurial concepts in developing this capability. Coming from a place of ‘current means’ in a corporate environment where we are often stagnant because we perceive a lack of resource was a HUGE turning point for me. I built a new corporate capability with a small team and shoestring budget that I scraped together. Setting the tone around leveraging the resource I had around me created a ‘can do’ culture within the team where we didn’t allow artificial barriers to get in our way.

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.

I really think it’s been amazing to meet people from all different industries, from all different worlds that all really have a desire to make a bigger impact in the community in which we live. Studio/E allows for us to practice that and then take that home.

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.
