Listening is hard. Information overload distracts and overwhelms us, preventing us from truly engaging with what we hear. During this hands-on workshop, IDEO designers share a few design-thinking methods that can be used as tools to make listening more creative, engaged, and fruitful. First prototyped at the Sundance Institute and the Aspen Ideas Festival, Creative Listening is a tangible set of habits that you can practice to unlock the potential of any listening experience to lead to new insightful ideas.
In this workshop you will learn:
- How to use your intuition like GPS for great ideas
- How to make your curiosity into a springboard for learning beyond expectations
- How to practice interpretation to boil oceans of information into digestible teacups
- How to find personal and professional inspiration in unexpected places
Over 2.5 hours, we will share stories from IDEO’s client work that inspired the Creative Listening toolset, practice using the tools together, and explore how the tools can spark creativity in your day-to-day life -- at SXSW and beyond.
