Episode Description

In business, we often start the growth conversation with a discussion of constraints. As a result, we get results that are only incrementally better than our starting point. This week's guest, Tim Ogilvie, reminds us that breakthrough results come from envisioning an inspiring future and asking "What's missing?" instead of "What's wrong?" Design thinking marks a sea change in how businesses create value, and it relies on empathy, exploration, and iteration, skills that connect deeply to what makes us human. As CEO of Peer Insight and co-author of the book “Designing for Growth”, Tim's philosophy is to help clients and collaborators discover their innate competence at these critical skills for the future. It's part mindset and part methods, and it represents a proven approach to make your vision real. Join Host Kate Ebner and Tim Ogilvie to explore the four essential questions that shape the design thinking process, questions that can catalyze your business -- and your life.
