Problem Solving Mindset
For many people, the most compelling aspect of work at Harvard is striving toward our collective mission to advance new ideas and promote enduring knowledge. Sometimes one needs to shift from a fixed mindset to an innovative, learning mindset in service of that mission. We define mindset as the ideas and attitudes with which a person approaches a situation. In this active workshop you will bring ideas for change within your department or School and learn a creative problem-solving approach to translate those new ideas into action. Wednesday, Feb. 8, 9–11 a.m. at the Center for Workplace Development, 124 Mt. Auburn St., Cambridge. Learn more and register here.
