At the Salon:
Design Thinking is a human-centered problem-solving methodology that is used for the design and re-design of products and services. As Bill Burnett and Dave Evans describe in their book Designing Your Life, the five steps of the design thinking process, along with common themes of its successful execution, can be used to "Build a well-lived, joyful life." In this session, Patty offered a "ReBoot spin" on using design thinking principles to determine the right next steps for you to take toward a more fulfilling life. Attendees left with an understanding of the five steps of the design thinking process and a "Personal Inventory Worksheet," which will serve as a guide to walking through those steps to develop the clarity needed to move forward.
