This week on The Austin Meyer Podcast (link in bio) I am chatting with Lisa Kay Solomon. Lisa does it all. She is a speaker, an author, and an educator focused on helping leaders learn how to be more creative, flexible and resilient in the face of increasing complexity and change. She is a currently a Designer in Residence at Stanford University’s Institute for Design and founding Chair of Transformational Practices and Leadership at Singularity University.
Lisa also co-authored the Wall Street Journal bestseller, Moments of Impact: How to Design Strategic Conversations that Accelerate Change, and, more recently, Design a Better Business: New Tools, Skills and Mindset for Strategy and Innovation.
In the first half of this conversation we take a close look at that best selling first book, Moments of Impact. Specifically, we talk about the idea of designing conversations. What does that mean? How does it relate to telling stories? And what are strategies we can use to design for impact? In the second half, we talk about the class Lisa is currently teaching at Stanford called Creativity Rules: Inventing the Future, and discuss the value of telling stories about the future. Hope you enjoy! #theaustinmeyerpodcast
