The Ambitious Power of AND

Back to schedule

Session Description

Can you learn to think with “and” instead of “or” to accomplish seemingly incompatible goals? Social entrepreneurs think with “and” when conceiving unorthodox solutions, such as harnessing market forces to advance a civic mission. Using a little creativity, you can retrain your brain to challenge false assumptions, rethink the way you approach challenges, and look differently at strategic planning, budgeting, hiring, product development, marketing, and even personal choices.
