  • Intergalactic Design Guide: A Conversation...
    Intergalactic Design Guide: A Conversation with Cheryl Heller Full Details [X]

    <strong>A Conversation with Cheryl Heller, author of</strong><br /> <span style="font-size: 18px;"><strong><em>The Intergalactic Design Guide:<br /> Harnessing the Creative Potential of Social Design</em></strong></span> <p class="p1"><span class="s1"><br /> Social design is a new kind of leadership.<br /> <br /> It offers innovative approaches for increasing creativity, strengthening relationships, and developing our capacity to collaborate&mdash;with the potential to transform everything from corporate cultures to cities. It pushes us to become comfortable with uncertainty, to design ourselves for change.</span></p> <p class="p1"><span class="s1">In <strong><em>The Intergalactic Design Guide</em></strong>, business strategist and designer <a href="https://dsi.sva.edu/faculty/cheryl-heller/" target="_blank" rel="noopener noreferrer nofollow">Cheryl Heller</a> explains eleven common principles, a step-by-step process, and essential skills for successful social design. She illustrates the social design process with in-depth examples&mdash;from the CEO of the largest carpet manufacturer in the world to a young entrepreneur with a passion for reducing food waste. While change-makers like Paul Farmer and Oprah Winfrey have instinctively practiced social design for decades, Heller organizes concepts applied by leaders in diverse fields so that they become accessible to all of us, no matter the focus of our work.</span></p> <span style="font-size: 18px;"><a href="https://www.eventbrite.com/e/the-intergalactic-design-guide-a-conversation-with-cheryl-heller-tickets-49662319334">Registration and Details</a><br /> </span><br /> <br />
