Upcoming LM Live Events
June 9 – Train Your Brain for Creativity
Many of us have reached a critical phase of burnout, one in which just showing up for work zaps the energy we previously devoted to innovative thinking and inventive solutions. But no matter what field of work you’re in, you need to generate ideas. And to generate those ideas, you have to get creative.
The good news is, even if you feel like you’ve lost your creative spark, you can definitely get it back — it just takes a little training. Join RedBox Innovation consultant Edwin Garcia to learn an actionable method to bring creativity to any practice. Participants will explore strategies to create original ideas for any challenge and any industry. After generating your ideas, you’ll figure out how to choose the most appropriate creative solution and walk away inspired to do some serious out-of-the box thinking.

June 14 – From Unconscious Bias to Conscious Inclusion
Unconscious bias is a “normal,” omnipresent tendency we all possess. It’s also something we have the capacity to identify and rewire. Not only is it an ethical business imperative to be aware of and counteract bias to welcome diversity and strive for inclusion, but it’s also an opportunity to strengthen our relationships and increase collaboration. And, of course, identifying your biases and cultivating diversity is just one step towards true inclusion — as Vernā Myers once said, “Diversity is being invited to the party. Inclusion is being asked to dance.”
In this interactive workshop, GoldJam Creative founder Jen Jamula will walk participants through these important processes.
Date: Tuesday, June 14, 2022
