Season 6, Episode 2: Creating a Way Out of No Way
The Ignite Institute welcomes a new host for Season 6 of Change Happens Now, education and community advocate, and Pacific School of Religion grad student, Maurice King, aka Mo. Join Mo, sharing space with incredible leaders, thinkers, and practitioners as they walk us through the change that is happening within them and around them, and how they’re responding to this moment, creating change for our world.
In this episode, Mo King is joined by Dr. Jennifer Madden, the Dean of the School of Business at Linfield University in Cleveland, Ohio, and the Author of Inter-Organizational Collaboration by Design which examines how collaborations can be designed and leveraged for innovation and rejuvenation, a concept she calls “Rejuvenative Innovation.” As a strategist, researcher, teacher, facilitator, and design thinker, Dr. Madden builds capacity for sustainable development. She talks about the power of the mind and thinking and creating a way out of no way. We find encouragement in what she shares about the importance of protecting your joy, not letting people talk you out of your power, and amplifying one’s ability to be in the spaces where you can be ready for the opportunity. This episode offers inspiration to all people to see themselves as designers, to adopt a new language, in order to see the world differently and visualize a way forward.
The Ignite Institute at PSR brings together personal, communal, and spiritual work from wisdom traditions to provide established and emerging leaders with the vision, resilience, and skills to create a world where we can all thrive.
