Using innovation to solve problems
Scott Sonenshein, Ph.D., Chaired Professor, School of Business at Rice University; Author, Stretch: Unlock the Power of Less—and Achieve More Than You Ever Imagined
Would you like to achieve more with less—at work and at home—and be happier and more creative at the same time? Scott Sonenshein, author of Stretch, will teach us how to do it!
In a constantly changing world, fewer and fewer corporate and personal situations can be handled using practiced routines. Instead, we need to be resilient and use the resources we already have; we need to stretch beyond our normal set of solutions, colleagues and friends.
Sonenshein has rigorously researched techniques that produce results in a fluid environment. Teams learn to improvise quickly and pull in ideas from other disciplines. They play improvisational jazz instead of classical music, and they have fun doing it! We can use the same tools to improve our personal lives and relationships.
So come stretch out of your usual routine! Learn how to improve both your organization and yourself.
Sonenshein holds a Ph.D. from the University of Michigan. He also has degrees from the University of Cambridge and the University of Virginia. He teaches organizational behavior, change and leadership.
